Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this bread. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Ground cinnamon

How to make Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
To make this bread, simply whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. Toss in the chocolate chips, then set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until combined. Add the yogurt, oil, vanilla, and banana, and whisk until combined.
Add the dry ingredients in thirds and fold in until just combined – do not overmix. The mixture will be quite thick and somewhat lumpy.
Pour the batter into a 9×5-inch loaf pan greased and lined with parchment paper, and spread out evenly. Bake for about 60 – 80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the bread comes out clean.
TIP: Cover loosely with aluminium foil halfway through baking to prevent the bread from browning too much. I covered mine at about the 45 – 50 minute mark.
Once baked, leave to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before slicing and serving.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
