How to Make Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This chocolate chip banana bread recipe is easy. Fresh bread filled with bananas, chocolate chips, and a bit of yogurt (no eggs in this recipe!). Just simply delicious. This is the time to use up any of those overripe bananas you might have sitting in your kitchen. They’re perfect for this recipe!

Before you begin, grease and flour a 9-inch loaf pan. Then move the oven rack to the lower middle position, and preheat the oven to 350°F.

How to make chocolate chip banana bread:

  1. Whisk together flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt
  2. In another bowl, mash together bananas, yogurt, melted butter, vanilla extract, and orange zest
  3. Use a rubber spatula to fold the chocolate chips and the banana mixture into the flour mixture (batter should still be thick and lumpy after combining)
  4. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and smooth out (if desired, you can arrange banana slices on top)
  5. Bake at 375°F for about 55 minutes to 1 hour
  6. Let the bread cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan

Banana bread with chocolate chips is the ultimate breakfast or snack. So chocolatey and delicious!

Can you freeze chocolate chip banana bread?

Yes, although the quality will not be quite the same as fresh bread after freezing and reheating. But you can freeze banana bread with chocolate chips if you want to save this loaf for another time. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, then store it inside of a freezer-safe bag. It will last up to 3 months.
