Ingredients:

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • Optional: additional chocolate chips for topping

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan and set it aside.
  2. In a sizable mixing bowl, combine mashed bananas, honey, melted butter, vanilla extract, and granulated sugar. Ensure thorough mixing of all ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture, stirring gently to blend. Avoid overmixing to prevent dense bread.
  5. Gently fold the chocolate chips into the batter until fully incorporated.
  6. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared loaf pan.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Once baked, allow the banana bread to cool in the pan for approximately 10 minutes. Transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

Benefits:

Bananas, whether mashed or otherwise, contribute to stress reduction as they are rich in potassium—an essential mineral regulating water balance, acidity levels, and blood pressure. Besides improving digestive health and aiding weight loss, bananas support heart health, enhance insulin sensitivity, and contain powerful antioxidants.
