  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ½ tbsp almond or vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (you can use Semi-Sweet/Milk Chocolate/Vegan)


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9 inch loaf pan.
  • Using a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar for 5 minutes or until fluffy.
  • Slowly, add in eggs, egg yolks, banana, almond or vanilla extract. Beat until incorporated, about 3 minutes.
  • Add in flour, a little at a time. Beat on low, until batter is combined.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Spread batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Cool for 20 minutes and then remove from the pan.


Note: I love adding almond extract to desserts, but I know some may not like that. Vanilla works perfectly in this recipe as well.
I like to serve it warm with a tab of butter.
