“A great twist on traditional banana bread. The chocolate chips make it extra irresistible. Just make sure to bake it until it's done, no matter what the timer says. I use wooden skewers to check instead of toothpicks, since I never have any of those around. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 5 x 3 inch bread loaf pan with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon.
  3. In another small bowl, combine milk, half the bananas and the vanilla extract.
  4. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the oil and mix. Then add the egg and mix until incorporated.
  5. Continue mixing in the large bowl, and alternately add the dry mixture (flour) and wet mixture (milk/bananas). Add 2 parts of the wet mixture for every 1 part of the dry mixture.
  6. Add the chocolate chips and fold in the remaining bananas.
  7. Bake 50 minutes, or until a wooden skewer comes out clean. Let cool before slicing.
