  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semis-weet chocolate chips or wafers


  • Generously butter and flour two 9x5x3 loaf pans and preheat your oven to 325°.
  • In a medium bowl add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, whisk to combine. Then in a smaller bowl, combine the 3 bananas, milk, cinnamon and nutmeg by mashing with a fork. Set both bowls off to the side for a moment.
  • Next, in the bowl of your mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add in one egg at a time, mixing after each addition. Add the vanilla and banana mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients, mixing on low speed, until incorporated.
  • Divide batter among the two prepared pans and slide them into your preheated oven. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean with only a few crumbs attached. Make sure to rotate the pans halfway throughout baking time.
  • Allow the bread to cool completely before serving.
