CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA BREAD
One of our very favorite quick bread recipes is Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. Peanut Butter Banana Bread with some chocolate chips thrown in because everything is a little better with chocolate.
I love making Quick Breads because they are so easy to make and can be ready to eat usually in one hour! There is nothing better than a delicious, warm piece of bread right out of the oven.
TIPS FOR MAKING QUICK BREAD
Quick breads are traditionally easier to make than yeast breads, but there are a few tips and tricks to making sure your quick bread recipes turn out great every time you bake them.
- Avoid over-mixing the batter. Stir the wet ingredients together well and then mix in the dry ingredients so that the batter is lumpy. Over-mixing will produce a tougher bread.
- Quick Breads with nuts actually taste better the day after baking. So wrap up the loaf of bread in plastic and store overnight before slicing and serving.
- Check your quick breads 15 minutes before the baking time is up. If the bread is browning too much on the top, cover the top with foil to prevent the bread from burning and drying out.
- Test the loaf with a toothpick in the center of the bread. If it comes out clean the bread is finished baking.
- If your bread has a crack along the top of it, that is actually a good thing. It means that your bread batter has expanded properly.
PEANUT BUTTER BANANA BREAD
Now some of you might be interested in a Peanut Butter Bread Recipe. This recipe makes a perfect peanut butter bread, if you simply leave out the chocolate chips.
It tastes just as amazing! I know there are some of you out there who are not big fans of chocolate, so just leave them out. I don’t really understand that…but to each their own…right?! :)
And on that same note, quick breads make it pretty easy to throw in some of your favorite add-ins. Some of our favorites are nuts, cranberries, raisins, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips and berries.
So get creative and change it up from time to time and you might find a combination that you absolutely love!

BREAD LOAF PANS
We love to bake our quick breads in these long loaf bread pans! The bread seems to bake more evenly without burning around the edges and remaining uncooked in the middle. You can find the ones we use here.
