Can we all just take a moment to remember the year that is 2020? Remember March and April? When Banana Bread making was the highlight of your day and Tiger King is what everyone binged on? Yes, that part of 2020...

I introduce to you my classic Chocolate Chip Banana Bread that

won't last longer than a day (or two) in your household. It's insanely moist

but feather light and it is just the right amount of sweet. I’m not a huge fan of super sweet banana bread, so I toned down the sugar, and allowed the bananas to do most of the sweetening. Also, the added yogurt really takes the moisture level to new heights. I promise, you won’t regret making this one (and did I mention how easy it is?!)

  • 2 cups of flour
  • ¾ tsp of baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar (or bakers sugar)
  • ¼ cup softened, room temp unsalted butter (+1 tbsp for greasing)
  • 1 cup of ripened, mashed bananas (2-3 med bananas)
  • 2 eggs, room temp
  • ½ cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1-2 cups of chocolate chips (If subbing with blueberries: 2 cups fresh blueberries, tossed in flour)
The How To:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a loaf pan with butter and then lightly dust with flour. Toss excess flour
In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt and whisk together.
In another larger bowl, beat the butter for a few seconds, then add the sugar and beat together until fluffy and a pale yellow color. To this, add the bananas, eggs, yogurt and vanilla
Once combined, add half of the flour mixture, combine, and then add the remaining and mix on low until completely combined.
Gently fold in your chocolate chips or blueberries
Pour mixture into greased loaf pan. Press a few extra berries on top of the batter for fun.
Bake for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes on a cooling rack before serving.

    I make mine with sliced bananas which I then cut into quarters. It seems to give a more intense, fresh banana taste and keeps the bread moist.
