Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Banana bread is my favorite bread. I never have a problem with bananas getting too ripe. I bake my banana bread in an 8x8 glass dish because who wants to wait all day for a loaf to bake?!   

Makes: Serves 8

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Prep time:

Cook time:

Ingredients:
  • 3 over ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional) (pecans are the best nut by the way)

Instructions:
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350° and lightly grease an 8x8 pan.
  2. Combine the almond milk and vinegar, set aside.
  3. In a large bowl mash the bananas with a potato masher or fork.
  4. Add the almond milk/vinegar mixture, oil, vanilla and sugar to the bananas.  Mix until combined.
  5. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Mix until combined (should be less then a minute). If you want to be fancy, combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, mix, then add to the wet ingredients.  I'm all about less dishes so I added everything to the same bowl and it turned out fine.
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes.  Check to see if it's done after 40 minutes.  A toothpick is the best way to check if it's done... poke it, and if it is clean, it is done.  If you hit a chocolate chip, try again.  I usually don't have toothpicks, so I poke with a super thin pairing knife or fork.
  7. Let cool before cutting.
