  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 215g
  • 1 tsp baking powder 4g
  • 1 tsp baking soda 6g
  • 1 tsp salt 6g
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice 1g
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom 500mg
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg 500mg
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 100g
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar 50g
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 113g room temperature
  • 2 tbsp plain yogurt 30g
  • 2 eggs large
  • 3 ripe bananas mashed about 1 1/2 cups
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 265g
  • 1 tsp vanilla 5mL


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Butter and flour a 9 x 5inch pan. I like to line the long end with a piece of parchment paper that overhangs the edge. It’s great for lifting the bred out after baking.
  2. Mash your very ripe bananas in a small bowl and mix with the 2 tablespoons of yogurt. Set aside.
  3. Sift dry ingredients into a medium-sized bowl. Whisk and set aside.
  4. Cream butter and sugar together in a stand mixer until light and fluffy.
  5. Add eggs one at a time. Let each egg incorporate before adding the next.
  6. Mix in mashed bananas and yogurt. Mix until fully incorporated.
  7. Add the sifted dry ingredients and beat until combined.
  8. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  9. Pour into the prepared pan. Sprinkle top liberally with chocolate chips.
  10. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
