1 1/2 cups ap flour
1 cup sugar
1.5 cups banana or 3 medium-sized bananas
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup nuts optional
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
- Pre-heat oven to 350 F
In a large bowl sift together all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Whisk to combine.
To sifted ingredients add vegetable oil, water, eggs, vanilla, and mashed bananas.
- Mix together until just combined. A lumpy mixture is what we’re aiming for.
Once combined add in the semi-sweet chocolate chips and fold into the mixture until evenly distributed.
Pour into greased 9 x 3 x 5 loaf pan
Bake uncovered for 90 minutes. If you think the top of your banana bread is getting too dark, go ahead and lightly cover it with foil to avoid it getting too dark. I personally don’t mind it getting a bit dark, those crunchy corners are my fav!
Baking :This recipe can be made with a wooden spoon, hand mixer, or even a stand mixer. Whichever is your preference. Before baking place a few chocolate chips on top of your batter so that when it comes out of the oven, you have melty chocolate chips on top! Chocolate chips are a must, but if you want to experiment with some other flavors try adding peanut butter chips, mini chocolate chips, or dried cranberries.
Eating: Serve your super moist banana bread right out of the oven, no butter is needed. This bread is just as great the next day, take a piece for breakfast on the go!Even more special during the holidays, you can wrap this loaf up and gift it to literally anyone, they’ll be so grateful.
Storing– Store freshly baked banana bread in an airtight container on your countertop for up to four days. Storing in the refrigerator will draw the moisture out of your bread, nobody wants that. You can store a cooled loaf of banana bread in the freezer. Freeze banana bread by simply wrapping tightly in plastic wrap and freeze it for up to 6 months. Freezing individual slices is alright too. Wrap each slice in plastic wrap, and store altogether in a Ziploc in the freezer.
