Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookie Bread

I made two loaves of this recipe yesterday. We ate BOTH loaves of this bread yesterday. And now, Aaron insists I make some more for tomorrow and possibly a few dozen for 'food storage'.  Recently, Aaron spotted a 'good deal' on bananas and came home loaded with several pounds of bananas that have reached their overripe stage simultaneously. So, to reduce the pile, I made some Banana Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting.  That was not enough to make a dent in it, really. So, yesterday, I found myself whipping up this recipe. It is best enjoyed with a glass of cold milk.

Here you go!


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnut pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease the loaf pans. (I used two small loaf pans because the large one takes too long to cook and I was too impatient.)
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then, stir in the egg, beating well. Next, toss in the milk and bananas. Stir for a minute or so. 
  3. Add the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir just enough to combine evenly. 
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. 
  5. Cool the loaf in the pan for about 15 minutes before removing to cool it completely.


  1. Wow, that looks delicious! I'm definitely going to try it!
