  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 7 tablespoons sour milk To make sour milk: add 1 teaspoon vinegar to milk and let sit 5 minutes
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9x5 or 8x4 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Cream butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer (and hand mixer is okay too).
  • Add the bananas, eggs, sour milk, and baking soda to a blender. Mix until liquefied.
  • Pour half of the banana mixture into the butter mixture with 1 cup of flour and mix until just combined. Repeat with the rest of the liquid and flour. Do not overmix!
  • Stir in 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips.
  • Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips. Bake approximately 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean (test right next to the crack).
  • Cool at least 10 minutes in pan.



This also makes 12 muffins (bake time approximately 15 minutes). You can substitute equal amount vegetable oil for the butter. You can substitute equal amount soy or almond milk for the milk, just add 1 teaspoon vinegar to the blender to activate the baking soda. Don't have a blender? You can make this by hand as well; just mash the banana with a fork.
