Cooking/Grocery Tips
When I buy bananas for the family I always buy extra so I have overripe bananas by the weekend. Do not use green or yellow green or even yellow bananas. You need to use overripe soft spotty bananas for this recipe. It gives the best texture and sweetness to any banana bread recipe!

This recipe is so simple with just overripe bananas, sugar, vanilla, egg, flour, baking soda and salt.

How to Make Recipe Step by Step
The reason this chocolate chip banana bread is the best is because of the method.
The method is in the wet ingredients:

  1. Mix the bananas and sugar first until smooth.
  2. Add the vanilla and melted butter, combine well.
  3. Add the egg and mix well.
  4. Let wet ingredient sit while you mix the dry in a separate bowl.
  5. BEFORE mixing the dry to the wet, give the wet a good stir again.

I swear the method of mixing that way creates the BEST BANANA BREAD TEXTURE EVER
