My all time favourite banana bread recipe!!

I have perfected this chocolate chip banana bread recipe during quarantine, and I am so excited to share it with you.

This recipe contains a few key steps...

Adding both butter & oil

  • This makes the bread incredibly moist and delicious.

Adding 1/4 cup of sour cream

  • I know it sounds weird to add sour cream to banana bread, but trust me - it is a game changer! Adding sour cream will give the bread that 'melt in your mouth' feeling that we are all after.

As always, if you ever make any of my recipes, I would love to see your recreations! You can send them to me on Instagram or tag me if you post it on your feed!! My instagram is @glimpse_of_gab

  • 4 tbsp of butter
  • 1/4 cup of oil (vegetable or coconut)
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup of sour cream
  • 1 3/4 cup of flour
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 3/4 cup of chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mash or blend your 3 bananas.
In a large bowl, mix together the mashed bananas, butter, oil and sugar.
To the same bowl add in the 2 eggs, vanilla and sour cream. Mix well until smooth.
Slowly stir in your flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips. Mix until combined.
Pour the batter into a greased bread pan.
For extra sweetness, top your loaf with some more chocolate chip and a sprinkle of sugar.
Place pan in the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes depending on your oven. (Mine usually takes around 60 minutes)
Let bread cool for 15-20 minutes before slicing.
  • If you are worried about the outer layer of your bread burning before the inside is cooked - cover with foil halfway through the baking process to prevent this.

    Why is the sour cream listed twice in different amounts. Why not 2 cups instead of ¼ cup and 1 ¾ cup of sour cream?
