This Easy Banana Bread is loaded with chocolate chips and cinnamon. This recipe is made with pantry staples and stays moist for several days.


  • 1 ¼ cup mashed banana (about 3 medium bananas)
  • ½ cup (118ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons (30g) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) milk
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (190g) granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cup (210g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup (180g) chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (58g) chopped nuts (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350°F: Generously grease a 9-inch loaf pan and set aside. Line the pan with parchment paper if desired.

Mash the bananas: peel and mash the bananas with a potato masher or fork.

Combine the wet ingredients: Combine the bananas with the oil, butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Beat all the ingredients together until well combined. Add the sugar and beat until incorporated.

Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl: flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Whisk to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and beat just until it starts to combine. Stir the mixture with a spatula to finish incorporating the flour. Fold in the chocolate chips or nuts.

Bake at 350°F for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool for at least 1 hour before slicing.
