Chocolate Chip Banana Bread on plate with banana - Marty's Musings

As a homeschooling mom of 23 years (they’ve all graduated, praise the Lord!) I taught my kids to bake with this recipe (yes, it’s that easy!) and I love that it only uses one mixing bowl!

This delicious bread is perfect for bread or as an accompaniment to any meal! My kids used to eat it as we read and did Bible devotions in the mornings.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and Muffins

  • I freeze bananas that are starting to turn brown and then thaw them to use with this recipe.
  • I love this recipe because it only uses one mixing bowl and one loaf pan.
  • We love to double the recipe and freeze a loaf for later.
  • Can also cook in smaller loaf pans but decreases cooking time.
  • For muffins, bake at the same temperature for 18-20 minutes.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is delicious served warm with cream cheese and a cup of Instant Russian Tea.

    I tried this with my grandchild as our bonding thingy…it was yummy!!! While she was mixing it she was already licking the dough lol!!! When it was finally done she tried it and she said it was delicious!!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. I love to turn this into Chocolate Chip Cherry Bread. I add about 1/4 cup cocoa and 1 cup dried cherries -rehydrated by boiling in water. Makes it taste like chocolate cake.

  4. Making this right now but increased the chips to 1cup (my hubby is a chocolate addict) and some walnuts! Looking forward to tasting it!

  5. Lots of great compliments on how yummy this looks…has anyone actually made it? and what’s your feedback on it please

    1. Hi, Shelley. This is our family’s favorite quick bread and I had a reader contact me on Thanksgiving Day because she makes it every year! Hope you make it and enjoy it!
