I just love a good banana chocolate chip loaf, I already have one that I made way back when I first started this blog so I wanted to create a new one. I ordered some Lily’s dark chocolate chips and was really impressed with the taste of them and the fact they did not upset my stomach (something I deal with when trying sugar-free products) check your local Whole Foods store if you have trouble finding them, I ordered from this Canadian website that carries a lot of hard to find products. This dark chocolate chip banana loaf was delicious and only 4 smart points per serving on WW freestyle.

    Are the Lily’s chips less points+ than regular mini chips?

    WOW!! This is delicious. My 18 year old son loves Banana Bread and thought this was out of this world. I didn’t have any chocolate morsels and it was still delicious. A definite keeper!

      Hi Denise, that is awesome to hear 🙂 so glad you both enjoyed it

  3. Just took this out the oven. Took a little longer in my oven. Soooo moist and yummy. I used a brown sugar substitute, and it is so good. And so easy to make. Yum!!

      If you are following a low carb lifestyle maybe… Did you know there is approx 27g of carbs in one med-large banana? Probably don’t think much of it when eating one as a zero point food right? Depends if you are watching your carbs or not, but between the bananas, flour and sugar it adds up

      I always use regular all-purpose flour unless I am making the two-ingredient dough

    I’m not sure what I did wrong, but I ended up with very dense bread. I’ll definitely try again, though, because the taste is amazing!

      My loaves are usually denser than most with the ingredients used, that said this loaf was not overly dense, I am so glad you still enjoyed it 🙂

  5. Love this recipe!!!! but did not have the chocolate chips you had. Used regular mini ones and made the loaf into 10 cupcakes

    • Drizzle Reply

      Yay, glad you enjoyed it and love that you made cupcakes 🙂

  6. Delicious recipe but for some reason mine sunk after taking it out of the oven and was quite doughy inside even though I checked with a toothpick before taking it out.. any ideas as to why? I’ll definitely try again!

      Hi Cedra, sorry to hear that 🙁 many of my muffin and loaf recipes will sink a little just simply due to ingredients used (replacing oils/butters for bananas/applesauce etc) that said it should not be doughy inside, could be that it just needs longer in your oven maybe.. try increasing the bake temp just a little and giving it an extra 10 minutes

    This bread was 👩🏽‍🍳💋 *chef kiss*! Your loaf recipes never disappoint. I’m a terrible baker and have yet to goof up one of your sweets. I changed this recipe just a tiny bit for my husband who needs to eat more heart healthy so I cut the flour down to 1 1/3 c. and subbed the rest with oats and added 2 tbsp of flax and a small handful of walnuts. It didn’t mess it up and my hubs doesn’t feel he’s sentenced to a life of bland vegetables and plain fruit. Thank you for your recipes that are so easy to do and that always come out perfect. You’re the best!

      Hi Lauran, thank you so much for your sweet words, they truly mean the world, also thanks for sharing your changes in case someone else wants to try it that way 🙂 I am so glad you both enjoyed it and tell your husband I’d never make him live a life with just bland veggies, Yuk, no fun in that haha!

  8. I love this loaf recipe, today I decided to leave out the brown sugar because I found it too sweet and with Banana and applesauce I didn’t think I needed the added sugar and low and behold it tastes just as delicious to me.
    Love your recipes!!!

      That is awesome, so glad it worked for you and you enjoy the loaf 🙂
