I love bananas! They are an awesome source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins. Aside from their nutritional benefits, this fruit (in my opinion) is one of the most versatile. You can make bread, popsicles, ice cream, pancakes, smoothies, pretty much anything with it! It’s a great natural sweetener and the best part- you can eat them after they get old! What other fruit can you do that with?? Over ripe bananas make the best smoothies, banana pudding, and my personal favorite chocolate chip banana bread!
I love making banana bread with my over ripe bananas. It’s quick, easy, and satisfies my never ending sweet tooth. Most of the ingredients needed to make this bread, you probably already have.
I like to try to sneak in whole grains whenever I can, so I used some white whole wheat flour to make mine. After that you basically just need some eggs, milk, brown sugar, chocolate chips, and bananas.
To be honest with y’all, this lovely bundt banana bread was completely unintentional. I moved into a new apartment about a month ago. We have most of the kitchen basics, so I assumed we had a bread pan– wrong! I got to cooking; had my batter all whipped up and then realized I didn’t have a bread pan. After a brief moment of panic, I realized I did have a bundt pan! So the chocolate chip banana bread mixture went into the bundt and to my surprise it turned out great! I feel like the bundt makes it look fancier? Maybe that’s just me?
In case you were wondering, this recipe is also roommate approved!
Go take those over ripe bananas and make this chocolate chip banana bread! You won’t regret it!
