Are you crazy about quick and delicious recipes? This One bowl chocolate chip banana bread is a quick recipe that requires simple essential pantry ingredients. This bread only takes a few steps and it’s ready in less that an hour. Enjoy it warm with butter and a glass of your favorite milk.

Soft texture for the perfect treat

This is the perfect snack for eating at home, especially during this quarantine that we’re dealing with. There’s nothing better than chocolate desserts to make our day happier. Children love baking and this is the best time for that.

This recipe is also great for making muffins. The baking time will be 2- to 22 minutes or until muffins are cooked through. My favorite part of this recipe is that you can throw the ingredients in one bowl, mix with a whisker (spoon or fork), pour into your loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes. That’s all!!!

I added pecans to the batter, you can skip this step or add any nuts that you have available. Also you can remove the chocolate chips completely for a basic banana bread. For best results use over ripped bananas.
