My husband has a few recipes that are just his and his alone. His omelets are amazing … as are his deviled eggs, his meatball subs, and his grilled cheese sandwiches.

But his very best recipe of all?  His chocolate chip banana bread!

Even so, he hasn’t wanted to share his recipe with the world until now. He finally changed his mind when some friends tasted it and begged him for the recipe, and he realized something this good deserves to be shared.

The big secret to his recipe? He uses way more bananas than usual. It’s that simple! We have a banana tree in our backyard that produces a ton of the cutest little bananas, so many that we can hardly keep up with the demand.

In many ways, this recipe was created out of necessity just to use them all!

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

    Just took a zillion frozen bananas out of freezer to mash and separate to banana bread amounts! Sat down to see if it’s 1 1/2 or 2 cups per batch … lo and behold, this recipe popped up in email!

    How many cups do 5-7 of YOUR bananas mask down to? Planning to freeze banana mash!

    So glad you love it, dear. Yes, they do stay well for over a day. Store in an airtight container. You could keep them in Ziploc bags. That way they remain quite fresh. Hope this helps.

    I just made a coconut banana bread yesterday. I wish I had seen your recipe first!! Looks delightful!

    FYI, there is a discrepancy in the recipe. The ingredients call for baking powder, but the instructions call for baking powder AND baking soda. 🙂 We are making it with just powder, hope it will turn out!

      HI Kay,
      You should have added the 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. It was listed in the ingredient list at the top of the post but the information did not make it into the recipe printable. How did your bread turn out? Please let us know. Thanks for your feedback. 🙂

    What is 5-7 bananas? 1 cup? 2 cups? We have huge organic bananas sometimes, sometimes normal size, sometimes smallish…is there more of a measure in cups?
