The Secret to Super Moist Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

If you’re on the hunt for the BEST chocolate chip banana bread…then look no further. This one is so incredibly moist, flavorful, and loaded with chocolate chips. Forget about any other chocolate chip banana bread recipe because this is all you’ll ever need!

This could well be the most indulgent banana bread you’ve ever tried. In addition to being positively loaded with chocolate, it also has an extremely moist texture that the author says actually tastes creamy when you eat it. Banana bread isn’t normally “creamy,” but this one gets its softness from two rather unexpected tricks. First, the author says to use melted butter instead of cold or room-temperature butter, because the melted butter really soaks into all the flour and gives it that remarkable consistency.

The second secret ingredient is Greek yogurt, which adds even more moisture and a lot of creaminess, but has enough structure that the resulting banana bread still has the shape of bread without falling apart like a wet pancake.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 1/2 cups ripe and mashed banana (about 3 medium bananas)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 325F and grease and line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the melted butter and sugars until you reach a paste-like consistency. This may take some vigorous whisking for a minute or two. You can either use a whisk or an electric mixer with the paddle attachment.
  4. Add in your mashed bananas followed by the eggs, yogurt, and vanilla.
  5. Once all of your wet ingredients are mixed together, fold in the dry ingredients. Then, fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan and spread it even. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top if you like.
  7. Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs. Let it cool completely before removing from the pan. Store at room temperature in an air-tight container.
