Almond Chocolate Banana Bread

Almonds and chocolate chips perfectly complement sweet ripe bananas creating a wonderfully moist banana bread. It is perfect for breakfast, dessert, or as a mid-day reward.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour
Serves: 1 loaf (8-12 slices)


4 medium overripe bananas, peeled
1/4 c. almond milk
5 T. vegetable oil
2 t. pure vanilla extract
1/2 c. sugar
2 c. all-purpose flour
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. almonds, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a standard 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork.
  4. Add almond milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine.
  5. Add sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Gently mix until flour is incorporated and the mixture is mostly smooth.
  6. Using a spatula, gently fold in chocolate chips and almonds.
  7. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until deep golden brown and thoroughly cooked in the center. Check doneness by inserting a toothpick or cake tester into the center of the loaf. It should come out clean with a few moist crumbs.
  8. Allow banana bread to cool in the pan on a wire rack for a minimum of 30 minutes before removing it from the pan and slicing.
  9. Enjoy!
