Chocolate chip banana bread

This banana bread is the best! The recipe makes three loaves all of which can be easily frozen. This has been a staple of my son’s lunches for five years and I have yet to meet a child who does not ask for “just one more piece please”.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 500 mls sour cream
  • 2 tsps baking soda
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 5 black bananas
  • 3-4 tablespoons vanilla
  • 2 cups chocolate chips or raisins


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs, sugar and oil together. Add bananas and vanilla. Once completely combined, add in dry ingredients (except chocolate chips) and beat until perfectly blended. Add sour cream and beat until blended. Add chocolate chips. Divide into three well greased pans and bake for 1 hour or until center is cooked.

For those of you who would like a “healthier version”, use raisins instead of chocolate chips. Cinnamon is a great addition to this version.

Alternatively, for those who have picky eaters, you can add protein powder to the mix and no one will be the wiser. This is especially true if you use a vanilla flavored organic protein powder.


The best banana bread ever!
