Simple, flavorful and easy, what could be better than a slice of Chocolate Banana bread? Enjoy this ultra chocolatey take on this delicious classic.


  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted (113 grams)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 cup mashed, very ripe bananas ( about 4 large pieces)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 and 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 oz semi sweet chocolate chips, or 171 grams or scant 1 cup


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan. In a mixing bowl, stir together melted butter, sugar, mashed bananas, vanilla extract, sour cream and eggs. Combine well.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture in the mixing bowl and stir just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick tester inserted at the center of the bread comes out with some moist, chocolatey crumbs. Cool the bread in the pan before slicing.
