Recipe Notes

You could skip the chocolate chips for a plain banana bread.

Our family doesn't like nuts but if you want to add them, go ahead and add them along with the chocolate chips.

I have also used this recipe to make muffins. If making muffins bake about 20 minutes.


I usually mash one or two bananas at a time with a fork in a separate bowl.


If you aren't used to baking, when measuring dry ingredients, level off the top of the measuring cup with a knife. Exact measurements are important for baking.
