Walnut Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread
Chocolate Chunk and Walnut Banana Bread tastes like a warm hug feels. The melted chocolate chips and mashed banana make for a moist, sweet bread, while the chopped walnuts add just the right amount of texture and nuttiness. When life gives you brown bananas, make banana bread! -@pastaragazza

  • 3 bananas, 2 over-ripe and 1 rip (cut in half lengthways)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 11/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Cinnamon Sugar Topping


  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven at 350°F.

  • Step 2

    First, in a large mixing bowl, mash the over-ripened bananas. Then, using a spatula, fold in the melted butter, vanilla, sugar, and cinnamon. Add in the egg and mix until homogeneous.

  • Step 3

    In separate mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until well-mixed. Fold the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until just mixed. Then, fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.

  • Step 4

    In a small mixing bowl, mix all topping ingredients. Set cinnamon sugar topping aside.

  • Step 5

    Pour batter into a greased baking pan and smooth with a spatula. Press the sliced ripe banana flat side up into the batter. Dust the top of the batter and bananas with the cinnamon sugar.

  • Step 6

    Bake for 50 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 10-15 minutes. Using a butter knife, cut around the perimeter of the loaf to separate the bread from the pan. Turn the pan upside down onto a plate. Turn the loaf right-side up and slice.
