Chocolate and bananas are a great combination. The sour cream in this recipe seems to set the chocolate off. We think you will enjoy this banana bread recipe.


1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
2 large eggs

1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (about three large)
1/2 cup sour cream

3/4 cup milk or dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnut pieces

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


1. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
2. Cream the butter and sugars together. Add the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each. Continue beating until light and creamy. Add about one third of the flour mixture. Add the bananas, then another third of the flour, then sour cream and then the remaining flour. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
3. Scrape the batter into a greased large loaf pan. Bake for 60 minutes or until done. Cool on a wire rack.
