Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This chocolate chip banana bread makes a great study snack or quick breakfast in the morning.

During exam season I like to prep meals and snacks ahead of time so I’m not constantly having to cook and think about what I want to make. Banana bread is super easy to make and I can do something else while it’s in the oven.

This banana bread makes a great breakfast if you’re in a rush (just grab a slice and go). I’ll also have it as a study snack in the afternoon when I want something sweet to keep me going.

You can also make this banana bread without the chocolate chips or substitute them with pecans or walnuts

Recipe Tips

You can reduce the sugar in this recipe for a less sweet bread but it does help to get a nice crust on the outside while the inside stays moist.

I usually buys bananas specifically for making banana bread and let them go almost completely black before I use them. If I only have one or two bananas, or want to wait to make the banana bread I remove them from the peel and put them in a ziplock bag and freeze them until I’m ready to use them.
