Makes 1 loaf

4 overly ripe, mashed bananas
3 eggs
3/4 cup (180 ml) of canola oil
¼ cup (60 ml) of water
½ cup (100g) of sugar *I find this is enough sugar if adding the chocolate chips but if you have a sweet tooth I would increase it to 3/4 cup (150g)
1 tbsp (15 ml) vanilla
2 ½ cups (300 g) of flour
1/2 teaspoon (5 ml) salt
2 teaspoons (10 ml) baking soda
½ cup (75 g) of bittersweet chocolate, chopped
½ cup (75 g) of Pecans or Walnuts

Preheat oven to 350F (176C) degrees. Spray a 9” x 5″ (23cm x 13cm) loaf pan with baking spray.

In a medium bowl mix dry ingredients and set aside. In a large bowl mix wet ingredients until combined.

Combine the dry into the wet, 1/3 at a time, being careful not to over mix! (Or you will have tough bread!) Fold in the chocolate chips and nuts.

Pour into a loaf pan. Bake for 55 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean.

If bread starts to brown too much on the top, cover with foil and continue to bake until cooked through. Slice into thick slices and serve

  1. is there a particular reason that some banana bread recipes use baking soda and baking powder and some banana bread recipes use just baking soda? have you tried both with your recipe? and can i use a stick of grass fed butter instead of oil? and grass fed whole milk?

  2. What is the exact amount of mashed banana required for this recipe, please? All the bananas are not the same, so the weight might differ quite a bit!
    Please give us this important information ????

  4. Beth, this recipe is the best! I have made countless times, not only for my family, but for friends, teachers and neighbors. They all LOVE it! Thank YOU so much for sharing the recipe❤

  5. I've tried many different banana bread recipes and this is the best tasting, no hassle, recipe!

  6. Yes!!! Found it. Wanted to make this again (probably for the 8th time) and couldn't remember who it belonged to. Had it written down but moved so-
    Thanks so much, awesome recipe ????

  7. For years I have experimented with banana bread recipes and never got it right. This one though will be my go to from now on. I will say my family likes it a little sweeter so depending on how ripe the bananas are, I go up to 3/4 cup (edit: I don’t add the chocolate or nuts). It is so good. Thanks Beth.

  8. I enjoy your recipe and entertaining videos! You are organized and such an inspiration to your audience. Thank you for sharing. From Boston

  9. I see you did not add any buttermilk and I heard it helps the baking soda to activate in the recipe being an acid…
