Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

My husband thinks I have a problem with patience.

A problem when we are stuck in traffic...

A problem when we are waiting at the gate for the plane to take off...

A problem in line when the person in front of us is still not ready to order after waiting in line for 10 minutes...

However, I would like to say that this is a trait we both share.

I have quite the delicious recipe today.  Banana bread with Chocolate Chips.  It is not quite breakfast and not quite dessert.  It is just one great any time of the day snack.

As I said I have the recipe for you but I only have a few pictures of bread that has already been cut.  Why you ask? Well, my dear husband has no patience when things come out of the oven...things that smell good...things that are not quite breakfast but not quite dessert.  For him, banana bread with chocolate chips is the perfect 3 snack after dinner.  You know the snack after all of the dinner dishes have been put away.  Thank goodness I love him.

Adapted from Cooking Down East

1/4 c butter
1 tsp salt
1 C sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 C flour
1 tsp soda
3 bananas, beaten creamy
1/2 C chocolate chips

Cream butter, add salt and sugar, gradually.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Sift flour, measure and sift together with soda.  Mash bananas with a fork, beaten until light.   Add alternatively with dry ingredients to egg mixture.  Add chocolate chips.  Turn into a greased loaf pan.  Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.


  1. I'm a pretty patience person when it comes to other people, my weakness is, just like your husband's, the goodies that come from the oven. I can hardly wait to dig into them!
    Beautiful loaf, Emily, yum!

  2. You just brought bananas up to another level. Chocolate chips make everything taste better. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I'm not so good with the patience either! And this bread looks so good, I'm not sure I could wait either!

  4. Oh I LOVE banana bread! Throw in some chocolate chips and I am in heaven! Looks great! :)

  5. Bananas and chocolate are very good friends...I'm glad you brought them together for the party!
