  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 medium ripe bananas (To equal 1 ½ cups) mashed
  • ½ cup buttermilk or sour cream
  • 4 tablespoon salted or unsalted butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 12 oz package semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray one large 10 x 5-inch loaf pan or two standard 8 x 4-inch loaf pans with baking spray. Set aside.

  • Pour batter evenly into pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes for a large 10 inch loaf pan or 40-45 minutes for two medium-size loaf pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes back clean.
  • Cool in loaf pan for 10 minutes then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container chilled or at room temperature.
