Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 loaf bread
  • Dry Ingredients:
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • Wet Ingredients:
  • 2 tbsp milk (use dairy free milk for vegans and normal milk if you don't have vegan restrictions)
  • 2 tbsp yogurt ( use dairy free yogurt for vegans and normal yogurt if you don't have vegan restrictions)
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp banana puree (from a large super ripe banana)
  • ¼ cup olive oil or canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Extra dark or semi sweet chocolate chips, for adding on top of muffins once baked
  1. Pre heat oven to 350F and make sure oven rack is in the middle of oven.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl while mix all wet ingredients in another bowl.
  3. Make sure your bananas are super ripe and sweet before making your banana puree.
  4. In another bowl, mix all wet ingredients.
  5. Add wet ingredient mix to dry ingredient mix and gently mix, mixing just enough so the batter is just mixed through.
  6. Grease your bread pan with some oil. I found greasing bread pan with oil and then dusting with flour or cocoa powder makes it super easy to take the bread out..
  7. Once you have your bread pan greased with oil, dust it lightly with flour.
  8. Fill the batter into bread pan.
  9. Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes. One time it took my bread 30 minutes to bake. So set the timer for 30 minutes and check, insert a toothpick in the center and if it comes out wet, continue baking for another 5-10 mins minutes. Test again after 5 minutes and bake until the toothpick inserted in the center of bread comes out dry.
  10. Let the bread cool for few minutes. Take a knife and very carefully slide the knife around the bread so it comes out easily!
  11. Once cooled completely, you can store it in an airtight container in fridge or outside if it's not too hot where you live.
