Does anyone happen to have a good Banana Bread recipe that you can put chocolate chips in? Most recipes I use turn out dry. I've got 4 overripe bananas here and want to make some quick banana bread out of them before we leave tomorrow. I found some recipes online, but I'd rather have a "tested" one if anyone has one they really love.

Just a thought...If you don't find a recipe, you can always stick the bananas in the freezer and use them another time.

Ooh I do, but it's at home. I'll post tonight in for another time in case you make your banana bread today. Mine calls for sour cream but I think that's what keeps it moist. Also, I use the mini choc chips...LOVE doing that! They don't settle to the bottom as easily as the big ones!

YUMM!! I'm so hungry this morning & this didn't help! But dang, now I want some banana bread!! :o

here's mine-it's low fat & low-sugar
3 ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup splenda
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (i use regular natural applesauce-no added sugar)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 to 1 1/2 cups flour (if you have whole wheat flour, this is even better)

preheat oven to 350 degrees, coat bread pan w/ non-stick spray or line bottom w/ parchment paper.

mix all ingredients until well blended. pour (it's more like glop it into pain, it's pretty thick) into pan and bake one hour, or until a tester (toothpick) inserted in center comes out clean.

it's very good (or so i'm told, i've had gastric bypass surgery and i don't eat it, i just make it) and can be frozen for use later.

I have never been able to use chocolate chips in a bread or cake recipe without them sinking to the bottom and making a mess.

Same here - mine calls for sour cream and is incredibly moist. This is the one I use:

Although in my experience, as long as I cut the baking time back by 10 mins and do a prick check for done-ness, it never comes out dry. I've always found that banana bread (all tea breads actually) recipes tend to call for longer cooking times than truly necessary...and thus dries them out.

Banana Bread-

2 Blocks butter
1 C. sugar
2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. nuts-(optional)
2 eggs
Raisins-(optional)
8-10 ripe bananas

Mix all of the ingredients together. Put in two greased, and floured loaf pans, and bake at 350 degrees for one hour.



***I make this recipe all of the time, and do not add in the raisins, and nuts, and instead subtitute it with 3/4 a bag of chocolate chips. You can also cut down the recipe, and make one loaf. :sunshine:

In my book, if they are made by someone else, they don't count toward any diet!! :)
