Banana Bread

  • 1 1/2 cups (210 g) flour
  • 3/4 cup (150 g) sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (240 g) mashed ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup (170 g) plain fat-free Greek yogurt, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup (56 g) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 large egg (50 g), lightly beaten, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp (8 g) vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (128 g) semisweet chocolate chips


  • 1/4 cup (42 g) semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, letting excess extend over sides of pan. Spray parchment paper lightly with nonstick spray.
  2. For the bread, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Combine mashed banana, yogurt, melted butter, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl; add to flour mixture and fold in until almost combined. Fold in chocolate chips
  3. Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth with an offset spatula. Tap pan sharply to remove air bubbles and sprinkle chocolate chips over the batter.
  4. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, until bread is golden and springs back to the touch (if desired, tent with foil after 35 minutes of baking time to prevent over-browning). Bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes; carefully lift bread from pan and cool completely.
