Since I have found this awesome Banana Bread Recipe at Simply Recipes a few years ago, it became my favorite go-to recipe, too. I make just a few slightly changes and use it for years.
However, I love to add chocolate wherever possible and moist banana bread is perfect for that. And chocolate chips are the best addition for banana bread, at least to my taste. This bread tastes great on its own, but when you add chocolate chips it becomes the best banana bread you’ve ever tried, too.
Actually, I love everything chocolate chips, like my all-time favorite Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies!

First, start with ripe bananas, then stir in melted butter, sugar and egg, and finally stir in flour, baking soda and salt. But do not forget chocolate chips!!!

Also, you don’t need a mixer or this Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. Just whisk everything with a fork, whisk or a spoon.
However, Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is great snack for kids. Also, it’s perfect for breakfast, especially, when you need breakfast idea to make ahead and grab on the go.
