Banana Bread with Chocolate and Walnuts

I love bananas, anything banana really, smoothie, ice cream, milk, even those little foam bananas so when one of my best friends made me banana bread I was one happy foodie! She has in fact made me 2 different banana breads that were both absolutely delicious, but she is now back in Vancouver to get married next week (I will be joining shortly before the wedding) so when I really had a fancy for it, I had to make it myself. I wanted to try a different recipe rather than copying hers so I went for Banana Bread with Chocolate and Walnuts and this is the recipe that I came up with:


  • 285g of Flour
  • 1 tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/2 tsp of Salt
  • 110 g of Butter
  • 225g of Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 4 Bananas – Mashed
  • 85ml of Buttermilk
  • 100g of Chocolate Chips
  • 120g of Crushed Walnuts
My Banana Bread Dough Ready for the Oven


  1. Preheat oven to 180C
  2. Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl and set aside
  3. In a separate bowl cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture becomes light and fluffy
  4. Add the eggs, mashed banana and buttermilk to the mixture and stir thoroughly
  5. Then fold in the flour mixture until mixed well
  6. Then add the walnuts and chocolate and stir in
  7. Grease a loaf tin and pour in the mixture
  8. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until risen and brown
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving

Serving Suggestion

Eat it as quickly as you can before it is all gone!

OK, so even I was impressed with my baking skills on this one, this Banana Bread with Walnuts and Chocolate was absolutely divine and so more-ish, even on a hot day!  This recipe will definitely be going into the recipe book to be made time and time again.

Tomorrow I go on holiday but Carla from The Soupstache has been so kind to offer me one of her recipes to feature whilst I am away, so look out for it!
