My Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is loaded with flavor and the perfect amount of chocolate in every bite you take. I love making this yummy recipe as a great little sweet breakfast bread, but it’s also a great dessert recipe. Grab your ripe bananas, dark chocolate chips, and favorite almond butter to create this amazing recipe.
Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Serving sweet breakfast bread is one of my favorite ways to surprise my family with a homemade breakfast. While I love eating a slice of this chocolate chip banana bread by itself, it’s also great alongside traditional bacon and eggs. It is also one of those amazing recipes you can easily double or triple and to freeze for future meals.
If you like chocolate, you might always want to check out my chocolate chip pancakes as another delicious option. Starting your day with chocolate at breakfast is such a great way to make your day better!
Tip: If you don’t have ripe bananas on hand, you can wrap some in paper towels and microwave for 1 minute to soften before adding to the banana bread batter.
IS THIS CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA BREAD VEGAN?
When you find dark chocolate chips that have no dairy, you can easily make this a vegan recipe. Remember, not all dark chocolate is vegan. Make sure you check the ingredients list to verify there isn’t any dairy in the ingredients list. This makes it a perfect option for those who are not just vegan, but also who are dairy-free.
If you do not need dairy-free or vegan chocolate, you can easily substitute the chips with different options. This recipe is just as delicious with milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, or even white chocolate chips.
CAN I FREEZE THIS CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA BREAD?
Yes! This is one of my favorite things about breakfast bread. You can bake large batches, and then allow it to cool and freeze for later. For this recipe, I like to cut the loaves into slices before wrapping and freezing. You could even make it into muffins for easy portions.
Wrap in plastic wrap and place it in a labeled freezer storage bag with the recipe name and date. This bread is good for up to 4 months in the freezer but can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week after baking. If you plan to eat it within 2-3 days of baking, it can be wrapped and stored on the counter.
