This chocolate chip walnut banana bread is dense, moist, and full of flavor. It's hearty enough to pack in your bag for the perfect breakfast on the go, satisfying snack, or anytime treat. It's simple to make and ready in just over an hour!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter a 5"x9" loaf pan. Mash the bananas in a large bowl. Add the eggs, brown sugar, and melted butter and whisk well.
3 medium bananas, 2 large eggs, ¾ cup brown sugar, ½ cup butter
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, ½ teaspoon sea salt
Gently fold the flour mixture into the banana mixture. When only a few streaks of flour remain, add the chocolate chips and walnuts and fold them into the batter.
1 cup chocolate chips, 1 cup chopped walnuts
Pour the batter into the loaf pan. Top with a few extra walnuts and chocolate chips, if you'd like.
Bake for 65-75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cleck the loaf after 45 minutes and, if it's browning too quickly, cover the top loosely with foil. Remove the banana bread from the oven and let it cool for 15 minutes in the pan then invert the pan to remove the bread and let it finish cooling on a cooling rack.
