Choc Chip Banana Bread

Could this be the best-ever version?!

As a banana bread enthusiast, Tasha Meys has tried A LOT of variations over the years. This her all-star winning recipe.


1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

100g butter, softened

2 large eggs

5 ripe bananas

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tbs almond milk (substitute any milk of your choice)

2 tsp honey

2 caps vanilla extract

2 cups wholemeal flour (substitute plain flour)

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

125g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a loaf tin or line with baking paper.

Mix the butter and sugar until a paste forms, then beat in the eggs until the mixture is creamy, fluffy and pale.

In a bowl, lightly mash 4 of the bananas (keep a bit of texture for extra moistness), then mix in cinnamon, milk, honey and vanilla. In another bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Fold both mixtures together, then gently mix in the chocolate chunks.

Pour into the prepared loaf tin. Peel and cut the remaining banana lengthwise, and place the two long long pieces on top. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
