This banana chocolate chip loaf is so moist and delicious! Such a great way to use up ripe bananas.
I had some brown bananas to use up so I thought I would make a delicious banana chocolate chip loaf. My husband and kids love the combo of banana with chocolate so this loaf went down well with them.
I used half plain white flour and half wholemeal flour in the mixture. I also only had half a cup of chocolate chips so I chopped up some Whittaker's 50% cocoa dark chocolate to bulk up the chocolate factor.
This recipe makes one large loaf, I like to scatter brown sugar on top before baking to give it a nice crunchy topping.
This recipe would also work well as muffins or mini loaves. It would also be a great present for someone wrapped up in brown paper with some rustic string.
I hope you enjoy my easy recipe for banana chocolate chip loaf. I'm sure your family and friends will love it as much as mine do!
