Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Filled with the goodness of bananas and sprinkled with sweet chocolate chips, this is yet another one of my kids’ favorite snacks.


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 large(or 3 medium) overripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 1/3 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients. In a separate mixing bowl, mash the bananas and add the milk, oil, maple syrup and vanilla, stir until combined. Add the chocolate chips. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not over mix or your bread will not rise properly. Place the batter into a 9×5 loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes until golden brown. the loaf is done when you poke it with a toothpick and it comes out clean.
