Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Bread



As I continue to try out new recipes to improve on my baking skills, I still find myself going back to my tried and true recipes. Sometimes I just crave the comfort of a familiar dish that I have made many times over the years, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Banana bread is not only a stable recipe in our home, it is also a perfect treat when you want something just a tad sweet.



2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 cup melted butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup honey

2 eggs, beaten

2-3 overripe bananas

1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

1/4 cup chopped walnuts



Pre-heat oven to 350F. In a large bowl mix the flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda together. In a separate bowl mash the bananas and add brown sugar, honey, eggs, and butter. Mix thoroughly and then add the mixture to the dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips and walnuts then mix with a spoon until fully incorporated.


Pour mixture into a greased bread pan and bake for 60 – 65 minutes. Stick a butter knife into bread loaf to ensure it comes out clean for thorough baking.


Let cool for a few minutes before removing loaf from pan. Enjoy with hot coffee or a glass of milk.
