Soft and fluffy banana bread with semi-sweet chocolate chips.



3 large overripe bananas

1 egg or 1/4 cup applesauce if making a vegan version

1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt use plain vegan yogurt if making a vegan version
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep the pan.
  2. Mash 3 ripe bananas in a bowl. Add eggs (or unsweetened applesauce), maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and yogurt. Use a spatula to fold the ingredients together.
  3. Add vanilla extract, cinnamon, and baking soda.
  4. Add brown sugar to the bowl and combine well.
  5. Now add your flour. I used whole wheat flour from Bob’s Red Mill. Gently combine well.
  6. Finally, add your chocolate chips and fold everything together. Then add the batter to the prepared pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Or until it passes the toothpick test.
