Banana Bread with Chocolate

What’s even better than banana bread? Banana Bread with CHOCOLATE!

I only recently tried banana bread with chocolate chips.

My Banana Bread recipe has become very popular and I LOVE reading everyone’s different interpretations, opinions, and additions. You’re all so creative!

One of the most common additions is chocolate chips, so I had to try it… and I get it. It’s goooooodd.

My family, who are HUGE banana bread fans, LOVE these muffins. My uncle told me I NEEDED to put this recipe on my site.

We also enjoy the combination of bananas and chocolate with these Banana Bread Cookies. You should definitely try them too!

The Perfect Amount of Sweet

This recipe is similar to my popular Banana Bread recipe (and it’s just as easy!)

There are some changes though. First, I omitted the nutmeg.

Second, and this is an important one, I decreased the amount of sugar in the recipe to allow for the sweetness of the chocolate chips.

I was worried the addition of chocolate would make the original recipe too sweet. And, it was the right call.

These banana bread chocolate chip muffins are the perfect amount of sweet.

How Many Bananas?

This is a frequently discussed topic, especially on my Pinterest pins for Banana Bread.

I prefer to use THREE bananas.

It’s possible to make these muffins with just two bananas. You could also make them with four. But, in my experience, four bananas can lead to muffins that are TOO moist or dense.

If you only have one banana, check out these Banana Bread Cookies.

Overripe Bananas

The most important thing is to use overripe bananas.

The peels should be turning brown. The insides should be mushy. The key is to use the bananas that no one wants to eat. 

Overripe bananas are sweeter because more starch has converted to sugar. They’re also easier to smash and smoothly incorporate in the bread. This leads to moist banana deliciousness.
