Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
I don’t know what you do on a 95-degree day, but I felt it was necessary to test some baking recipes. We had some very ripe bananas, and I had a craving for something sweet, so Chocolate Chip Banana Bread was born. I am notorious for baking disasters, from dropping the entire container of flour on the ground, to leaving out an entire critical ingredient. The banana bread and the kitchen survived my recipe testing this time.
What's better than chocolate and bread? Hahaha! This winning combination is sure to make your mouth water and bring you back for more!
- Butter/Oil - just a smidge to grease the pan
- 6 tbsp of water
- 2 tbsp ground flax
- 2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 3/4 cup Sugar
- 3/4 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 3 Very Ripe Mashed Bananas
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1/4 cup Tofutti Vegan Sour Cream
- 6 tbsp Unsweetened Applesauce
- 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan.
Boil the 6 T of water and then add the 2T of ground flax, reduce the heat and simmer a couple of minutes until thickened
Whisk flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl
Whisk Bananas, sour cream Applesauce, Vanilla, Flax mixture in a medium bowl
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
The mixture will be clumpy, but should be mixed.
Mix in the chocolate chips
Pour into the loaf pan
Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with crumbles or clean. Rotate halfway through.
Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes.
Remove from the loaf pan and cool for 1 hour before serving.
