How To Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

  1. Use overly ripe, black bananas for moist banana bread.
  2. Use oil, not butter, for moist banana bread.
  3. Carefully fold wet and dry ingredients together with a spatula for tender texture
  4. Check the bread after baking for 50 minutes. If a few crumbs are on the tester toothpick, remove the bread from the oven.

Try chilling the loaf. So yummy cold with a glass of milk.

Makes a great gift for family and friends for the holidays too. Wrap in some nice cellophane and a bow and you’ve got yourself a beautiful homemade gift.


Tips For The Best Banana Bread

  1. Bananas that you use for your banana bread should be overly ripe, lots of black on peel.
  2. To store ripe bananas: freeze with or without the peel. Return to room temperature before baking.
  3. Use oil over butter. Oil emulsifies and coats the flour, preventing it from absorbing too much water which results in dry banana bread.
  4. Carefully fold dry and wet ingredients together for a tender crumb.
