  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 10 Slices 1x


Units Scale
  • 4oz (1/2 cup/ 1 stick) Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 66 grams ( 1/3 cup) Granulated Sugar
  • 100 grams (1/2 cup) Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Large Eggs, at room temperature
  • 250 grams (2 cups) All-Purpose Flour/ Plain Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 5oz (Heaping 1/2 Cup) Greek yogurt or Sour Cream
  • 3 Brown Bananas, very ripe around 12oz
  • 170 grams (1 Cup) Chocolate Chunks/Chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C and grease a 9X5 loaf pan.
  2. Melt butter in the microwave or over the stove. In a large bowl combine melted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Add in vanilla and eggs. Mix until just combined. Add banans and mash right in the bowl of the wet ingredients then fold in the sour cream.
  3. In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined.
  4. Fold in chocolate chunks but do not overmix. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  5. Bake for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for at least 30 minutes before inverting on to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.



Quick-breads are a great candidate for freezing. Once the loaf has completely cooled wrap it in plastic wrap/ cling film twice, tightly. Then wrap it in foil or place it in a freezer-safe bag. To thaw a loaf of frozen banana bread let it sit in the fridge overnight or place on the counter for a few hours.

You can also freeze slices of banana bread by following the same method of wrapping in plastic wrap twice and then storing it in a freezer-safe bag. To thaw slices of banana bread place them on the counter at room temperature for 30-60 minutes depending on the sizes of the slices.
