Quick banana bread is an old-fashioned favorite updated with the addition of chocolate chips.
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 3 (5 3/4 x 3-inch) mini loaf pans; set aside.
Combine sugar and butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs; continue beating until well mixed. Add bananas and vanilla; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in all remaining ingredients.
Spoon batter into prepared pans. Bake 33-38 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely.
Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Store refrigerated.

Made a double batch of these for gifts and kept one for myself. I used 1 cup of chocolate chips for 6 loaves and found that it was enough chocolate for me. I like that this recipe is not super sweet like some others, and the banana taste comes through well. The top ended up a bit crispy but that may have just been my oven. I will make these again.
My family and friends BEG me to make this banana bread on a regular basis! There are so many easy alterations you can make to change it up :)
I used this to make muffins and they turned out very good! I halved the recipe because I used three mini bananas instead of two medium ones. It made 8 muffins that way.
I added crushes pecans to mine as well, loved the chocolate chip, nut, and banana favors! Yum!
This bread was so easy to make, and my friends loved it! I will definitely make this again and again!
Delicious! Will definitely keep this recipe and make again.
I made this bread 5 times already... it was delicious, everyone loved it....very moist and sweet..
I enjoyed this very much. They had a nice banana flavor and the chocolate chips added a little something extra. They turned out light with the right amount of moisture. Easy recipe. I used 6 mega 3 x 2 muffin tins and baked them for 25 minutes. Will be baking these again.

This past weekend was glorious! We had perfect weather for catching up on our yard work. We spent all of Saturday afternoon weeding and tending to our overgrown “problem” areas. Ryan’s mom, Becky, was even so kind as to come over and play with our toddler so that he could be outside, too – without getting too close to the clipping shears and other dangerous tools.
