Looking for a family friendly dessert recipe that the kiddos will love?
You can stop looking. This banana bread recipe was passed along to our family from a
friend and my husband (who can’t cook anything without putting his own
twist on it) has doctored it up over the years and made it less
traditional and more delicious! It’s so easy to make, the kids can
definitely get involved and will beg for this. You don’t need to use a
kitchen-aid, but it definitely makes the process a little easier.
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 ½ cup of all-purpose flour
1 cup old fashioned oats (optional)
Semi-Sweet chocolate chips (optional)
Me: (while writing up this recipe) How much chocolate chips
do you put in?
Hubby: Until I feel like I’ve had enough chocolate in my life.
1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2) Mix butter into mashed bananas in a large bowl
3) Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla
4) Sprinkle baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix
5) Add flour, oats, and chocolate chips, mix together
6) Pour mixture into a 4x8in greased loaf pan.
7) Bake for 1 hour (Expert Tip: On the rack below the bread, place an oven
safe pan filled with water. This keeps the bread Moist!)

Looks so good. I have not seen a recipe that uses oats before, I would if my kids would notice? Maybe they will be so impressed with the chocolate chip’s they won’t notice the oats.
