Chocolate Chip and Walnut Banana Bread

Saturday started with bright warm sunshine.

It shone a steady stream of light through the windows.

These days call for crackling wood stove fires.

And freshly baked bread.

Chocolate Chip and Walnut Banana Bread

  • Servings: makes 1 loaf
  • Print

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a loaf pan with butter.

Combine mashed bananas, melted butter, sugar and eggs in a medium sized bowl. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix ingredients until fully incorporated. Fold in the  walnuts and chocolate chips, (leaving out a handful of each to sprinkle over the top).  Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle the remaining nuts and chocolate chips over the top.

Bake for 50-55minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Enjoy your weekend!
