Moist Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Ingredients

  • All Purpose Flour: basic flour choice.
  • Baking Soda and Baking Powder: Both act as leavening agents (helps the banana bread rise). Baking soda requires an acid (in this case we used brown sugar) to have a chemical reaction. Since baking soda uses acid from brown sugar to work its ~leavening magic, adding baking powder to help with rising helps to keep the brown sugar flavour.
  • Salt, Cinnamon and Vanilla Extract: Essential for flavour.
  • Bananas: The star of moist chocolate chip banana bread! The bananas provide moisture and flavour! It is important to use very ripe bananas.
  • Eggs: Provides structure.
  • Melted Butter: good ol’ fat.
  • Brown Sugar: As stated above, brown sugar is needed as an acid for baking soda. But brown sugar tenderizes the banana bread and gives a hint of caramel in each bite.
  • Dark chocolate chips: I tried this recipe without the chocolate chips and I felt like something was missing. We are only using 1/2 cup in this recipe, which is enough to get the subtle hint of chocolate in each slice.

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheating the oven at the start ensures the oven is evenly at 350F and gives an even bake.
  2. Grease the loaf pan using butter and flour. Tap out any excess flour.
  3. Use different mixing bowls for dry and wet ingredients. Whisk the dry ingredients thoroughly and set aside.
  4. Whisk together the wet ingredients (this includes the brown sugar).
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently fold together to prevent over-mixing.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips until just combined, do not over-mix!
  7. This creates a thick, drop batter. Tap the bottom of the baking pan to distribute the batter evenly.
  8. Garnish with chocolate chips and a banana cut lengthwise.
  9. Bake for 45-50 mins, add aluminum foil on top if becoming too brown.
  10. Let cool on wire rack and serve once completely cool.

Notes
