  • 1.5 cups baking flour
  • 3 ripe bananas large size
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar 2/3 cups if you are skipping the chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet) optional


  1. Mashed bananas in a large bowl. Add the sugar, melted butter, egg. Mix.

    Tip: If you are skipping on the chocolate chips, you may want to up your sugar a little bit. I would do 2/3 cups of sugar (instead of 1/2 cup) when skipping the chocolate chips. 

  2. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking soda.

  3. Pour dry mixture over liquid mixture. Add the salt and chocolate chips. Combine.

  4. Grease a 9.5x5 (or similar size) loaf pan. Transfer the mixture and bake for 325° for 1 hour. Let it cool for a few minutes and serve.
