  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and spray a 9" loaf pan generously with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in eggs one at a time until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Stir in milk. Add the banana mixture to the butter mixture and stir until combined.
  • In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Pour chocolate chips into a bowl and sprinkle with about 1 tablespoon of the flour mixture. Stir to coat and set aside.
  • Add the remaining dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir just until combined - do not overmix. As soon as the dry ingredients are blended in you're done mixing.
  • Gently fold in chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan on a wire rack, then gently lift out using the parchment paper as handles. Slice and serve.
