When the bananas are ready for chocolate chip Banana Bread?

The blacker the banana is, the sweeter it is. Best bananas for banana bread aren’t yellow but black or at least nicely spotted and soft. The flavour of a really ripe banana is more concentrated which is perfect for any banana bread recipe out there.

How To Ripen Bananas Quickly

If you’re eager to make banana bread but don’t have bananas that are ripe enough, don’t worry. Just preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C, place the bananas unpeeled on a baking sheet and bake for about 12-15 minutes. Let them cool then proceed with the recipe.

So you have lots of overripe bananas? Peel them and freeze them. Next time you’ll crave banana bread just let them defrost and use them in your recipe.

Use another type of flour for chocolate chip banana bread

  • Whole wheat flour. It will make the banana bread a little more dense but still remain delicious. Use milk chocolate morsels for better results .
  • Gluten-free flour. Any gluten free flour mix should do the trick, but I recommend using a brand you have previously used and tested before.
  • Other types of flour. Coconut flour, oat, almond, buckwheat.

How To Store It

Honestly, at home this chocolate chip banana bread rarely last more than one day, but sometimes I bake two or three loafs to share with friends and family, so I always recommends to wrap it tightly with cling film or put it in a zippered bag and keep it at room temperature for 2-3 days.

You can also slice it and freeze it for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge to have it ready next morning for breakfast!
