  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4-5 very ripe bananas mashed
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 or 9-inch square baking pan with nonstick baking spray or line with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the melted butter and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until well blended. Mix in the bananas until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until combined. Stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the granulated sugar evenly over the top.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center (about 200° in the center with an instant read thermometer.) Let the bread cool slightly in the pan on a rack. Cut into squares to serve.
