  • ½ cup Unsalted butter melted
  • ¾ cup Brown sugar packed light or dark
  • ¼ cup Sour cream room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Large eggs room temperature
  • 3 Medium ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup Mini chocolate chips extra for topping
  • ½ cup Chopped walnuts extra for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 inch loaf pan with baking non-stick spray. Line the bottom and 2 sides of the pan with parchment paper. Spray again.
  • In a mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
    2 cups All-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon Baking soda, ¼ teaspoon Salt, 2 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • In a separate bowl, use a whisk and mix melted butter and brown sugar. Then, add in sour cream and vanilla. Mix until combined. Add in eggs and mix. Add in the mashed bananas.
    ½ cup Unsalted butter, ¾ cup Brown sugar, ¼ cup Sour cream, 1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract, 2 Large eggs, 3 Medium ripe bananas
  • Add in the dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula. Add in mini chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
    ¾ cup Mini chocolate chips, ½ cup Chopped walnuts
  • Pour batter into pan. Top with extra mini chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
  • Bake for 50 minutes-1 hour. It is done baking when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. To prevent over browning, tent the loaf with foil. Let it sit in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before cutting into it.


Flour- Make sure flour is spooned and leveled or use a kitchen scale. Compacted flour can dry out the loaf.
High altitude baking- Add an extra 2 tablespoon of flour.
Make sure all dairy ingredients are pulled out 2 hours before baking.
