How to Make Eggless Mini Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 1-pound loaf pan with parchment paper, letting it fold over the sides for easier removal.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, dark brown sugar, cane sugar, and vanilla extract and mix on low until combined and there are no chunks of butter.

Add the bananas, heavy whipping cream, and sour cream and mix on low until combined. Add the pastry flour, baking powder, and sea salt into the mixing bowl in that order. Mix on low until combined. Add the mini chocolate chips and mix on low just until combined.

Step 3

Grease the bottom and sides of a 1-pound loaf pan. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and spread out evenly. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Once the loaf has cooled, remove it from the pan. (If you're baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions).

FAQ's

How ripe is too ripe for banana bread?

Bananas should be very ripe for banana bread. When bananas ripen, the starches turn to sugar. This provides more flavor, and it also makes the bananas softer and mushy, which makes them great to mix into baked goods!

If your bananas are completely black, honestly, they are probably fine. Open them up and see what they look like inside! If they are a dark tan color, that’s great! The only time you don’t want to use them is if you open them up and they are brown, moldy, or have a rotten smell or have liquid inside. Those are sure signs that bananas have gone bad.

What happens if you overmix banana bread?

The more you mix banana bread, the more the gluten will develop. This can create a tough and rubbery banana bread. I use pastry flour in this banana bread for an extra light and fluffy banana bread!

What if I don't have pastry flour?

You can use cake flour in place of pastry flour. You can even make your own Homemade Cake Flour with my easy 2 ingredient recipe!

Why does banana bread not cook in the middle?

Banana bread can be under cooked in the middle if it’s not baked long enough. Make sure to test your banana bread with a toothpick or I usually use a butter knife. Stick it directly into the middle of the loaf and make sure it comes out clean, as in no wet batter stuck to it.

How to store banana bread?

Banana bread is moist and fluffy, so it should be stored in an airtight container to retain this moisture and texture. You can use a Tupperware or Ziploc bag. I even have these loaf pans with lids that I use to store banana bread, and they work great! Foil is not sufficient enough for banana bread, and plastic wrap will work if need be but the other options are better, more eco friendly, and also keep it more fresh!

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
