Bananas are our family's favorite fruit. We rarely never had bananas in our home. We literally buy bananas every time we'd go to a grocery store.
On very rare occasions, bananas would get too overripe when stored in our fruit rack. And last week was one of those occasions.
Not wanting to waste those overripe bananas, I thought of baking banana bread which I haven't done for around 10 years.
This time, I would like to bake them with chocolate chips. I used my old but good banana bread recipe and just added some semi-sweet chocolate chips.
This Chocolate Chips Banana Bread is very moist. My kids love it! Although next time, I'm going to cut-off on the sugar because the semi-sweet chocolate chips I used added sweetness to it. (I'm controlling the sugar intake of our family.)
Here it is, the recipe of The Best Moist Chocolate Chips Banana Bread
3 ripe medium-sized mashed bananas
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup melted butter
2 large eggs
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or dark-chocolate chips)
Pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
Mix the dry ingredients, all-purpose flour; baking powder; baking soda; salt; brown sugar; and ground cinnamon, except the chocolate chips.
In another bowl, combine melted butter, milk and eggs. Beat until light and fluffy.
When done, combine the dry mixture into the wet mixture. Stir until the ingredients are well-blended.
Pour the chocolate chips into the batter. Fold until combined.
Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan.
Bake in the oven for about 70 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow the chocolate chips banana bread to cool down in the pan for 15 minutes.
Remove from the loaf pan and allow it to completely cool on a wire rack.
Serve and enjoy.
Please take note that I have doubled the ingredients for this recipe when we baked it that day.
And as I've mentioned earlier, I'm planning to cut off on the sugar next time. Instead of 1 cup, I'll just be using 3/4 cup. But if you have a sweet tooth, try the original recipe I posted here.
The kids and I had so much fun doing this. It was a perfect indoor bonding moment during this pandemic.
