Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I have been on a real banana kick lately. I've eaten bananas as snacks, I've had quite a few banana sandwiches for lunch, and this weekend, I tweaked a favorite banana bread recipe to include some of the Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate Morsels I recently found on sale at the grocery store.

And oh my, was this good! I substituted plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream I've typically used to keep this banana bread nice and moist, and it worked out beautifully. Here's the recipe as I made it. Enjoy with a brisk cup of tea for a great afternoon snack!

Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 large ripe banana, mashed
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ingredients in order listed, mixing well after each addition. Pour batter into 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan prepared with cooking spray and/or lined with parchment paper. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Yields 1 loaf. Delicious served warm. Refrigerate any leftovers.


  1. That sounds really delicious, thank you for sharing the recipe!

  2. Thanks Angela for the recipe. I have wondered about greek yogurt instead of sour cream so I'm glad it turned out. It looks delish. It's a rainy day here in Ontario and good for baking. Deb

  3. Sounds yummy, I will give it a try!

  4. Hi, Angela ... I made a similar recipe last week, and the choc-chips settled at the bottom, which made for a tasty 'crunch-like' crust!

  5. Sounds just delicious with a morning cup of tea.

  6. I gotta try this one.....sounds yummy..

  7. Your banana bread looks yummy. I'll keep the recipe for future reference as I'm trying to take off the pounds I put on while I was in England. Wouldn't it be wonderful if all those yummy tea time treats didn't have calories? ;-)

  8. Yum! The chocolate chips remind me of a pumpkin muffin I make.
