I wanted to shower you all with love today by finally sharing this much requested recipe. This is another oldie, but goodie. I've tried variation after variation to make it a little healthier but each one has failed miserably. It was either too dry, too dense, not sweet enough, to pasty or just not good ;) Ah, kitchen failures - you gotta love 'em!
This recipe is perfect just the way it is and I've now officially tapped out on trying to tweak it. So I hope you enjoy this original, unedited version of one of my old faves.
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Makes 1 loaf
1/2 c white sugar
1/3 c vegetable oil
3 large ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
2/3 c chocolate chips (I like milk or dark chocolate, but since they were both wasted in previous fails, I went with semi-sweet :)
Preheat your oven to 350. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat together the bananas, egg, sugar, oil and vanilla.
Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and sea salt. Mix well.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Pour your batter into the loaf pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. The bread is done when a toothpick can be inserted into the middle and comes out clean.
Remove the loaf from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove the loaf from the pan and cool on a cooling rack.
Slice and serve.
oopsie daisie - we had a little accident :)
mix your wet ingredients
then add the dry
stir until well blended and then fold in your chocolate chips
If you're like me, you won't be waiting until the loaf is cooled. I wait until I'm able to handle a piece and then help myself to a big ol' slab slathered in organic butter.
Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm. Now this is what I call LOVE <3!
Do you ever bake your own bread? What type of bread is your favourite to make?
Do you have any plans on this day of love?
Whatever your plans, I hope you have an amazing day <3
