Enjoy this chocolate chip banana bread for breakfast, as a snack, or for dessert. It’s quick, easy, and the perfect way to use up extra bananas!


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste
1 cup white sugar
½ cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


• Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan, preferably glass.

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Stir bananas, milk, and cinnamon in another bowl. Beat sugar and butter together in a third bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy; add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir banana mixture into butter mixture; mix in flour mixture until just blended. Fold in chocolate chips; pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 70 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
