Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

1 May

Surfing pinterest, I came across this delicious banana bread recipe. I recently made a different version and it was also yummy but a little sticky and I figured I should try different variations. This came out really good. Seriously – amazing. Super flavorful but at the same time light and would make for a perfect breakfast on the go. I will be making this time and time again!

Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit

Ingredients
cups all-purpose flour
teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 large)
¾ cup vegetable oil
Regular or mini chocolate chips

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350°. Coat a loaf pan with nonstick spray. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Add eggs, sugar, bananas, and oil and mix to combine everything. Add chocolate chips and stir. Scrape batter into prepared pan and wiggle the pan side to side to even everything out.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of bread comes out clean, about 35 minutes.
