A Perfect Recipe for a Fresh Start – Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I thought a great way to start would be to post one of my favorite recipes.  Now, I haven’t had this recipe for long, in fact for most of my life I haven’t been a huge fan of banana bread.  I could never find a recipe that was healthy enough to meet my expectations that still tasted amazing.  I mean banana bread sounds like it should be healthy, right?  Unfortunately just because a recipe has a banana in it doesn’t make it good for you.  That being said I don’t mind it when my kids chow down on this whole wheat chocolate chip banana bread(and not just because I can’t help myself either).  So to keep things short and sweet…

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Delicious whole grain banana bread with chocolate chips.  

Course: Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Ingredients
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the bananas, butter(or vegan alternative if that's how you roll) milk, sugars and vanilla.  I've even reduced the sugar to 1/3 C total and it's works just fine. Mix all the dry ingredients then add to the wet and mix just till incorporated, then fold in the chocolate chips.  Pour your batter into a greased loaf pan and bake for 45 - 50 minutes.[/print_this]
