Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Flaxseed

I don’t know if anyone else has this problem but bananas seem to ripen extremely fast on my kitchen counter. I get my chance to make lots of banana breads, muffins, waffles and other baked goods with banana puree. But I have found my favorite recipe.

Chocolate Chip Banana BreadOf course, you start with some ripe bananas.

Ripe bananas
You need to mash up three of them. I of course pureed mine in my food processor.

Banana puree

Then in a large mixing bowl combine the banana puree with 1/3 of a cup of melted butter, one egg, and 1/2 cup of brown sugar.

Wet ingredientsIn another bowl combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and flaxseed. Yes, flaxseed. My friend, Katie, is always touting how her North Dakota farmers raise the best flaxseed. Guess I should get on the Omega bandwagon!!


Dry Ingredients
Slowly combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Then grab your favorite chocolate chips. Mine are by far Ghirardelli!

    Shoot I wish I was on here an hour earlier. I was looking for a banana bread recipe. I ended up going with a Pioneer Woman recipe, just waiting for it to cool off. Looking the turquoise background by the way.
