I Adore What I Love Blog // The Best Chocolate Chip Recipe Ever // www.iadorewhatilove.com #iadorewhatiloveTRUTH: you will never in your life taste banana bread as delicious as this. Seriously!! Here’s the thing, I know it’s a bold statement but I feel like I have rights to say it because Brody and I literally make it every other week and guess what? Everyone, and I mean, EVERYONE {even those who don’t like chocolate chip banana bread} is obsessed with it!! You see, my grandma passed this recipe down to my mom and my mom passed it down to me, so it’s tried and true and without a doubt, the best. To add to my point even more, it’s a lot of people’s favorites, and that’s no accident. My mom has been making this for my best friend, Alyse, for ages; my husband can’t ever just eat one bite {or one piece}; and everyone who we gift mini loaves of it too asks for the recipe. See, I wasn’t kidding you; it clearly speaks for itself :)

By the way, Brody LOVES being my sous chef!! However, we typically like to bake right after he’s woken up from his midday nap, which means bed head galore and a really dirty shirt after his snack!!!! Honestly, I was going to try and spruce him up a bit prior to this baking sesh but then decided against it, because… real life! It’s way more fun to see, am I right? So, without further ado, welcome to my real life, friends! I know I’ve always been a big fan of behind the scenes pics and I feel like this is totally that!!!!

Print
Ingredients
  1. 3 bananas - if extremely ripe, using 4 may be better!
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1 & 1/2 cups flour {I use Krusteaz brand Gluten Free Flour - and have found that 1 and 1/4 cup works best with this flour}
  5. 1/4 cup melted butter
  6. 1 tsp baking soda
  7. 1 tsp salt
  8. chocolate chips - as much or as little as you desire
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven 325 degrees.
  2. Pam or butter your traditional sized loaf pan or 4 mini loaf pans.
  3. Mash bananas in a large bowl.
  4. Add all ingredients into the bowl with the mashed bananas.
  5. Mix everything together really well.
  6. Pour into your traditional loaf pan and bake for 1 hour {or pour the batter equally into the 4 mini loaf pans and bake for 30-35 minutes or until tops are golden}
  7. Let cool once out of the oven for a good half hour, then take banana bread out of pans and serve! Enjoy!!

I know you’re going to love this. It’s hands down my favorite dessert. Oh! If you’re wondering how in the world I can eat it since it’s not gluten free, wonder no more. As you can see in the recipe, I subbed in Krusteaz brand gluten free flour for regular flour and it literally doesn’t change the taste of this recipe one ounce. It’s definitely my go to so if you’re in the market for a gluten free flour, you should give it a try! I actually buy it in packs of 8 on amazon! I’m also allergic to tapioca and it’s pretty much the only gfree flour blend without it. Thank goodness it’s a good one otherwise I wouldn’t be able to enjoy this banana bread anymore!!!!!! PS I’m just telling you all this because it’s the truth. This isn’t a sponsored post in the least!!

By the way, if you’re craving an easy meal for lunch or dinnertime, you must check out this taco pizza that I posted the recipe to on my Instagram page. I seriously haven’t stopped thinking about it since I ate it two weeks ago! Yummmm.

Literally for the past 2 years, 3 months, and 5 days {‼️} we haven't left each other's sides... And he loves me. A LOT.  Maybe as much as I love him. So I think we both felt it. He did great at drop-off but these are the moments as a mom you wish you could just skip! At least I do. Because while proud doesn't even begin to describe the feeling I had this morning, it was also scary and sad and brought out all the emotions! 🥰 Parenting is hard!
