My Mother’s Banana Bread

Out of all of the banana breads I’ve had over the years, I’d be lying if I didn’t say my mother’s was my favourite. Sure, I’m probably a little biased. But I do think it’s a pretty good banana bread.

Cook Time45 mins
Total Time1 hr


  • 3 Bananas very ripe
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tbs Melted Butter or Oil
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips


  • Mix bananas, sugar, and eggs together until bananas are smoothish. 
  • Add in flour, baking soda, and oil. Mix until incorporated.
  • Pour batter into a 9 inch loaf pan.
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips over top of loaf
  • Bake at 350 for 45 to 60 minutes.
  • * to make muffins divide batter evenly into a 12 spot cupcake pan and bake for 25 minutes

If your bananas are super ripe, it might take a little longer to bake because of the moisture. So just do the classic toothpick method to check if it’s done or not.

It’s a super easy recipe that people love!
