Our Favorite Banana Bread is delicious, with the chocolate chunks or without. Super moist and full of banana chocolate flavor! This recipe is our favorite for a reason! It will be yours too!
Jump to Recipe Print RecipeI think I have loved banana bread all of my life, especially with chocolate in it. Chocolate and banana go perfectly together, don’t you agree? I can’t be the only one who loves chocolate and banana flavors together . Can I?This banana bread is wonderful without the chocolate too! I just can’t seem to help myself! I always include it. I actually prefer with chopped chocolate but chocolate chips will work in a pinch! Sometimes you can’t be too picky, especially if you are like me and crave a little chocolate every once and a while!
That being said, Our Favorite Banana Bread is wonderful on it’s own, without chocolate of any kind in it. If you don’t want to include it don’t! You won’t be disappointed in the results!I can eat Our Favorite Banana Bread at any time of the day or night! Sometimes I just make a loaf and it will disappear in no time so now I usually make two loaves at a time! This banana bread freezes beautifully even though I don’t usually get the chance!We also make two other banana bread recipes that are definitely worth a look!

- 2 cups all-purpose flour -
- 3/4 cup sugar -
- 3/4 tsp baking soda -
- 1/2 tsp salt -
- 1/4 cup sour cream -

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour bottom and sides of nonstick loaf pan. Set aside. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Set aside. In another bowl combine mashed bananas, sour cream, eggs, butter, and vanilla with a wooden spoon. Gently fold banana mixture into flour mixture until just combined and batter looks thick and chunky. Using a spatula pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake until loaf is golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 60-65 minutes. Cool in pan for at least 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack. Enjoy!
