When it comes to classics you'll want to make over and over again, this chocolate chip banana bread is hard to beat. It is perfect for amateur and expert bakers alike!

There aren't many things that beat a warm slice of banana bread filled with melted chocolate chips.

This easy banana bread is a great favorite with and without nuts. I know many people who love a banana bread full of nuts, while others prefer their banana bread without nuts.

Banana and walnut bread

I'd love to eat a slice of this chocolate chip banana bun with or without nuts, but most of the time, I choose to add a generous handful of nuts. We are a family that loves banana bread stuffed with nuts, so I recommend adding them.

However, if you are not a fan of walnuts or avoid them due to allergies, rest assured this banana bread is fantastic without them, too! Moist and sweet with the perfect amount of chocolate chips, I've made this chocolate chip banana nut bread over and over again and have never been disappointed.

For a standard banana pecan bun or a less sweet batch of muffins, you can also skip the chocolate chips if you like, but I think the chocolate chips and nuts combined with the rich banana flavor in this bread are the perfect combination.

Banana Bread with Sour Cream

Sour cream is the secret ingredient for irresistible wet banana bread. Have you tried the original sour cream banana bread? I am happy to tell you that the basic recipe is very adaptable and this is our latest favorite variation.

Unlike some banana bread recipes that tend to end up dry and crumbled after a few hours, this The banana and walnut bread recipe stays completely tender and slicing, thanks in large part to sour cream. If you've never baked with sour cream before, I can't wait to hear what you think after trying this banana and chocolate chip walnut bun recipe.

Did you know that banana bread is even better the day after you make it? It's kind of weird, but that's how it is. I love to make banana bread in the afternoon and then enjoy a slice with my morning coffee the next day.

I store it in an airtight container and the banana provides even more moisture the next day. Why? I don't know, but it's true.

Banana bread is also a great afternoon snack with a glass of milk, a welcome treat for tea time, and a great freeze for breakfast on busy mornings. When it comes to chocolate chips, you can even cut it, serve it with a scoop of ice cream, and call it dessert.

A loaf of chocolate chip walnut bread and chocolate is also a fabulous hostess or teacher gift. I would never turn down a loaf of freshly baked homemade banana bread, especially when it comes to nuts and chocolate chips. Banana bread is welcome on my plate at any time of the day or night.

I enjoy banana bread so much that I used the flavors to inspire one of our favorite breakfast foods, the Oatmeal Baked with Banana Bread and Peanut Butter!

Quick bread recipes

I could make a different type of banana bread every week and never get bored. I've shared many of my favorite variations on this classic bread on this site, from Blueberry Coconut Banana Bread to Hawaiian Banana Bread with Pineapple, and love them all.

The world of fast bread is more than just banana bread. One of our favorites is this Irish Raisin Soda Bread that I made after being inspired by a tour of the British Isles.

While banana bread is an ideal way to consume overripe bananas, there are plenty of other bread recipes to put other types of fruits and vegetables to good use. When zucchini is plentiful in the summer, recipes like this carrot bread with apple and carrot and this gluten-free zucchini spice bread are at your service.

And fall isn't fall until you've filled your kitchen with the aroma of baking pumpkin bread or cinnamon bread and apple pie.
