Chocolate Chip Banana Bread


This recipe is from Matt's old roommate (actually his mom)

Matt loved when Jordan would make this and mentioned wanting it multiple times.

I finally broke down and asked Jordan for the recipe.

It is yummy! Even if I slightly over baked it.


Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

[Printable Recipe]


1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

3 eggs

2 1/3 cups Bisquick baking mix

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

6 oz. chocolate chips


Heat oven to 350°.    

Generously grease bottom of loaf pan, 9 x 5 x 3 inches (I used two, though after talking with Jordan, he said it should all fit in one.) 

Mash bananas.


Add in all ingredients(except choc. chips) in mixer bowl and beat vigorously 1 minute.


Shake choc. chips in bag with a little bisquick so they don’t sink to the bottom of the batter


Add to bread

Pour into pan.


Bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes. (My oven over cooked it when I did it for 55, I would start checking it around 45 mins next time)

Cool 5 minutes. 

Run knife or metal spatula around sides of loaf, pressing gently to loosen.

remove from pan.




This bread is so good. I don’t even really like banana bread and I enjoyed his bread. Super easy and super good. It is a must bake again!


  1. Looks pretty amazing from where I'm sitting!

  2. I never thought of putting chocolate into banana bread - what a fabulous idea!
