Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Sharing is caring!

For years I’ve kept this Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe a secret. It has a crispy sweet top layer and is perfectly moist inside. I love to bake several loaves and give them away to neighbors and friends at the holidays. The sour cream is the secret ingredient!

Banana Cream Bread Recipe with Chocolate Chips

While we lived in Northern Ireland I had a cute little table at our monthly craft fair and sold sweet bread loaves. I sold out every month. They were popular! It is my go-to recipe when I’m asked to bring a snack to an event and today I’m sharing this top-secret recipe with you.
