Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Our good friends, Lev and Sandy, announced they were pregnant with their first kid (a boy) when I was very close to giving birth to our son. We were thrilled that the two boys would be the same age. Just a few days ago, Lev and Sandy announced they’ve got a new bun in the oven… just in time for our #2 kids to be BFF. We are beyond thrilled for them and excited that Sandy enlisted her kid to do a guest spot on the blog today. Isn’t the mess of curls on this kid adorable? Here’s what Sandy had to say:

My son was so excited when he heard that he would be doing a guest spot on the “Cooking with My Kid” blog.  It was perfect timing because our neighbors just had a baby and we wanted to bake something for them.  They requested something sweet with chocolate.  We decided on banana chocolate chip bread (one of my son’s favorites).  We figured the banana, almond meal and whole wheat flour added some healthfulness and everyone needs a little chocolate, right?

Simple Banana Chocolate Chip Bread Recipe

Prep Time: 15 mins  Cooking Time: 50-55 mins

Ingredients:
4 large very ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup almond meal (trader joe’s has a great one)
½ cup canola oil
2 eggs
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Grease a loaf pan with oil or butter and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients in order listed and put in pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until edges are golden brown and toothpick comes out clean. Super easy and super yummy!

Sandy says “*We’ve also made this recipe with pureed pumpkin and pureed sweet potato instead of the banana with great results.”Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
