This scrumptious chocolate chip banana bread is tender, fragrant, and loaded with chocolate chips. It’s incredibly easy to make and stays soft and moist for days!


  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp (5ml) baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5ml) salt
  • 1 cup (175g) chocolate chips plus more for topping
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup overripe mashed bananas (about 3 medium)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a 9×5″ loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Toss in the chocolate chips.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, eggs, mashed bananas, sour cream, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir together until just combined.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Top with more chocolate chips.
  6. Bake for about 1 hour or until the top-middle of the bread feels firm and springs back when lightly pressed
