Chocolate Chip Honey Banana Bread


This ever-moist banana bread with honey and chocolate chips is truly the only banana bread you need! It’s a one-bowl wonder, made with pantry staples, and endlessly customizable. The honey is the true star of the show, as it’s the only sweetener and pairs so well the comforting banana flavor.

Though chocolate and banana will always be my go-to combo, you can add in whatever extras you’d like! Make this recipe your own by adding in chopped nuts, a cinnamon swirl, or leave plain and top with more honey after baking! No matter how you dress this banana bread up, it will taste absolutely amazing. 

Chocolate Chip Honey Banana Bread

This one bowl chocolate chip honey banana bread is incredibly soft & moist, comes together in a flash, and lasts for days!

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes


  • 340g (1 ½ cups) very ripe mashed banana (about 3 medium bananas)
  • 100g (½ cup) neutral oil*
  • 170g (½ cup) honey
  • 1 egg (room temp)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 240g (2 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 113g (4 oz) chocolate (+ more for topping)
  • turbinado sugar for topping


Step 1:

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the bananas on the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, turning them over halfway through for even browning.
  3. Remove from the oven once evenly dark.
  4. Allow to cool before peeling and mashing.

Step 2: In a large bowl, mash the bananas until smooth, then whisk in the oil, honey, egg, and vanilla until fully combined.

Step 3: Add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir the leaveners into the flour to avoid clumps of them throughout the batter. Then, use a rubber spatula to fold all of the dry ingredients into the batter until just combined. Lastly, fold in the chocolate.

Step 4: Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 55-60 minutes or until golden on top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Step 5: Allow the banana bread to cool for a few minutes in the pan, then remove to cool completely on a wire rack. Top with flaky sea salt and enjoy!
