  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)

  • Stir in the chocolate chips, if using.
    3/4 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)
  • Pour the batter into the prepared bread loaf pan then bake for 50 minutes. The center of the banana bread should spring back to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center of the banana bread should come out cleanly, with no sticky batter.
  • Let the banana bread cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes. Then, flip the bread out of the pan to slice and enjoy while warm.


  • Mash the bananas in a small bowl with a fork. You can also use a food processor to blend them into a smooth puree. 
  • Be sure to use very ripe bananas; the more brown on the banana peel, the better!
