  • 4 medium ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 and 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, mash your ripe bananas until fully mashed. Set aside. In a smaller bowl, melt your butter. To the melted butter, add your granulated and brown sugar. Using a whisk, whisk together until creamy. 

  2. Directly add the butter/sugar mixture to the large bowl with the mashed bananas. Next, add in your eggs, sour cream and the vanilla extract. Mix to combine. 

  3. Using a sifter, sift the flour, baking soda and salt into the banana mixture. Mix only until incorporated. Don’t over mix! 

  4. Gently fold in 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips. 

  5. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan with butter and then line with parchment paper. Add your batter directly to the pan. Top with additional chocolate chips if desired. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick can be fully inserted and come out clean. 

  6. Once done, let cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes and then remove and place on a cooling rack. Enjoy a slice warm with butter! 

Recipe Notes

For this recipe (and most of my recipes), I used salted butter. It's a personal preference. Feel free to use unsalted butter for this recipe.
