Description

A whole grain delicious quick bread with bananas and the added sweetness of the chocolate chips.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups White Whole Wheat Bread Flour
  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • ½ cups Organic Cane Sugar
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1-½ cup Buttermilk
  • 2 whole Eggs, Lightly Beaten
  • ¼ cups Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1 cup Ripe Bananas, Mashed (about 3 Medium)
  • ¾ cups Semi-sweet (or Dark!) Chocolate Chips

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two 9×5 inch pans with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, both sugars, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

In a medium bowl, mix together buttermilk, eggs, butter, and bananas. Pour into dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Pour batter into prepared pans and bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Note: you can also use the batter to make muffins. I usually make one loaf and use the remaining batter for muffins. The muffins will need to bake for about 20 to 25 minutes.

I have made this many times, today being the most recent. I thought I should add that if you are like me today, and remember that the melted butter is in the microwave as you are loading the pans in the oven, don’t despair! They still taste great!

Tried to leave a review because this recipe definitely deserves 5 mittens!!! Oh yummers, we could barely wait 5 minutes after pulling it out of the oven to give this bad boy a taste. I was wondering how it would be considering whole wheat flour usually is tough but not in this case. I also added 2TBS ground flax seed. Thanks for sharing.

This is every bit as delicious as previous posters have said. Even my picky 12 year old who says he doesn’t like oatmeal LOVED it. I used mini chocolate chips since thats what I had in the house, WONDERFUL. They melted a little more than what I imagine the big ones would, so there was literally chocolate in every bite. We’ll be making these again SOON!!

I’m going to make the bread, too, and use Rose’s presifted flour.
I have several very ripe ‘nanners and will add pecans.
Dark chocolate in banana bread is devine.

Wow this is so good. I made it last night to take for my preschoolers this morning. It is the best banana bread I have ever had.

I agree with an earlier post, it was ok. Banana bread is pretty hard to mess up and this was an interesting version to make it a bit healthier, but I’d rather have a more traditional take on this classic. However, it was nice to try something new.

Ridiculously good. Glad it makes two loaves b/c the first is already gone… :)

This turned out great! I used whole wheat white flour as I don’t have “bread” flour specifically, and instead of chocolate chips I used just over a half cup of peanut butter chips. Also I used two heaping teaspoons of cinnamon instead of one measured one. I thought it turned out great, nice texture too. I blogged it here: http://mybakingadventure.tumblr.com/post/28780879448/banana-peanut-butter-chip-oatmeal-bread-yes (Sorry, I don’t know if I can use html here so I’m posting the whole link.)
