Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread from (@whatsgabycookin)

We’ve been baking a LOT these days so let’s get down to business shall we. This double chocolate chip banana bread is fantastic. It’s made in 1 bowl, so super quick and easy. It’s moist and chocolate-y and works for breakfast, snacks and dessert. And it’s obviously stuffed with plenty of chocolate chips because that’s the only smart way to eat banana bread. Then it’s just into a loaf pan and into the oven for about an hour and voila! Easy right? It’s genius if you ask me. 

It’s worth noting here (although it’s noted in the recipe) that it’s best to use SUPER ripe bananas for this recipe. So ripe that there are black spots all over the usually yellow banana peels. That means the bananas are going to be sweet and mushy and easy to incorporate into the banana bread.

If you don’t have overly ripe bananas, but you do have yellow bananas on hand, I like to pop them into the freezer for a day to turn them brown. Then just take them out, thaw them out and use for the banana bread as needed!

  • 4 overripe bananas I like to stick ripe bananas in the freezer and then let them thaw before making banana bread so I always have overripe bananas on hand
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon chocolate extract, vanilla extract works too
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with a nonstick baking spray.
  • In a large stand mixer, combine the butter and sugar and whip for 2 minutes until combined. Add the egg, scraping down the sides of the bowl to make sure everything is evenly combined. Add the extract and the bananas and mix for 30 seconds. The batter will look a little curdled, this is normal.
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and mix for a few seconds until the flour is evenly combines. Add the chocolate chips and give it all a quick stir.
  • Pour into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 55 to 65 minutes. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before running a knife around the perimeter of the loaf pan and inverting the banana bread and transferring the loaf onto a cooling rack. Slice and serve as needed.

  11. Caitlin

    What IS this sorcery!? I think I’d use use a combo of the soup, slow cooker and blender functions. It would be so nice to come back to a smooth and creamy soup!

  12. Melissa Reyna

    As a legally blind professional Baker, I would love to simplify my time in the kitchen with a Prep&Cook of my very own to aid in making pastries and desserts. I’m obsessed with kitchen gadgets that will make my time in the kitchen productive with the aid of advanced technology. Being legally blind and working in the kitchen as a profession can be challenging. But, with the right kitchen tools and appliances, I am able to breeze through recipes as well as create amazing desserts. I’d love the chance at winning one of these beauties for my very own.

  13. Ildeponso Perez

    I’m a working single guy, I need one! I love banana bread but meatloaf would be the first thing I would try to make..

  14. Shivani

    I would make indian naan bread and a lot lentil soups !! I need this machine in my life it is like a second chef in the kitchen !

  15. Sally P

    I still remember the day my husband brought me home one of the very first food processors. Didn’t know what it was but went to work on figuring it out…still laugh when I recall turning that poor onion almost instantly into water! Quickly found out why the Pulse Switch was such an asset. Lol

  16. Sally P

    Not sure exactly what this is capable of butI think but Meatballs come to mind. Watch out onions!

  17. Dave C

    Wow! That looks amazing. I’d go with breads – sweet and savory – and probably lots of veggie soups.

  18. Angela R.

    Hmm, so many possibilities! I’d really like to try making some soups and also some breads to start with, though. 🙂 Thanks for doing this awesome giveaway. Fingers crossed!

  19. Connie Neer

    I think I would try rye bread, I think that machine is top notch and your chocolate banana bread looks luscious. I would have to put a batch of that to a test in there.

  20. Hayley

    I baked it for over 80 minutes and still undercooked and mushy! Should the oven be hotter?

    • Gaby

      do you have a little oven thermometer that you can use to see if you oven is running true to temp?

    • Gaby

      table salt is much saltier – so I’d reduce by half

    The only banana bread I’ll make anymore! Maybe a bit more on the cake side than bread… but it’s so tasty!!

    This bread (re: cake with bananas in it) is so delicious! I didn’t have chocolate chips #quarantinelife so I just omitted and it turned out excellent. I also used Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 gluten free flour and it subbed perfectly. This is definitely going to be a repeat recipe.
