Feel like baking…..but not really? You want to make something good but don’t feel like spending much time making it. I know that feeling… plus a few bananas going bad along with it. So, banana bread came to mind. It’s sweet and versatile, and the leftovers, if any, can be tomorrows breakfast. PB+J sandwich? Why not. Maple syrup and whipped cream…umm yes please! Remember you can substitute the chocolate chunks with nuts or dried fruit if you please, or just leave it plain and simple.
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
- 1 1/3 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup vegetable or coconut oil
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar + 1 tbsp for top
- 2 large eggs
- 3 medium bananas mashed
- 1 cup chocolate chunks
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a loaf pan.
Whisk the flour, baking soda and baking powder in a large bowl. In a medium bowl add the oil, sugar, sour cream, and eggs. Mix well until homogenized. Pour the oil mixture into the flour mixture and gently incorporate. Mix in the mashed bananas. Gently fold in the chocolate chunks. Pour mixture into the loaf pan and sprinkle with the 1tbsp sugar and cinnamon. Bake 50-60 mins. Remove from oven and gently run a butter knife along all edges of the pan to release the banana bread. Let cool 20-30 mins, invert onto a cutting board. Slice gently or… rip apart and enjoy!
