Rich and Moist: Sour Cream Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

Finally, 3 overly ripe bananas managed to remain in my fruit basket without my husband throwing them out into the compost. You see, he doesn’t understand that those blackish-brown bananas are the star ingredient to super yummy banana bread. Typically, he will throw them out before I even get an opportunity to make anything out of them. He finds them disgusting. Not this time! These bananas were hiding under a bag of pretzels, yeah for me! So this afternoon I thought I would make banana bread with these bad boys. Not just any banana bread either. Sour cream chocolate chocolate chip banana bread! Are you feeling me? Can I get an Amen!?

After pulling the loaves out of the oven, my kids and I devoured one within 5 minutes. This is probably the best banana bread I have ever had. I even tweaked my own recipe and it turned out amazing. I’ll take a slice of this bread over cake any day!

Because I used mini chocolate chips, you could see and taste little bits of melted chocolate in each bite. And the banana bread was incredibly rich and moist. Like the weirdo I am, I felt compelled to put a pat of butter on each slice (yes I ate 3 slices), not that it needed it. I’m a butter addict, what can I say?

    Time to make some more… and boy did I panic when I couldn’t find the recipe. That’s the one good thing about internet, I kept searching key words till I found it again. YEAH! Time to write it down this time and keep it! Thanks again….

    I used raisin seed oil, substituted sugar for agave sirup, added 3/4 cup of all brand, and this is going to be a classic for me from now on.

    I loved this recipe! My substitute was vanilla Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream and husband didn’t want double chocolate so I left out the cocoa. Family classic definitely

    I am going to make this for Christmas. Is the first Christmas for my boyfriend and I in our apartment, so I want to make something good, but something I can put together without messing it up ( new at cooking and baking department) ! You got me when you said you and your kids devoured one immediately after it was out of the oven! I think that is so sweet! I can’t wait to bake this banana extra chocolate bread!
