Fudgy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Upgrade your go to banana bread with this one stuffed with chocolate chips and vegan fudgy bites!

The world made a beeline for banana bread this year when we went into lockdown, and I can see why, it's so simple and moreish It's versatile, makes a cracking snack or even breakfast if you will so let's not stop there with just the classic recipe. I love making variations of banana bread, there's always extras you can add here and there, and with this recipe I went for chocolate chips. It' nice to have a bit of texture in banana bread and the wonderful people at Buttermilk sent me their Vanilla Fudgy Bites - a vegans dream when you can't get your hands on good dairy-free fudge, these really hit the spot. They made a lovely addition to this recipe and I urge you to get your hands on a bag :)

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 40-45 minutes
Serves: 10


225g Plain flour
100g Light brown sugar
50 Caster sugar
90ml Vegetable oil
1 tsp Baking powder
Pinch of salt
3 Ripe bananas
100g Vegan chocolate chips 
Topping optional
Melted vegan chocolate
More chocolate chips


✿Preheat the oven to 180℃ and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking paper, enough so that it is hanging over the edge - so you can lift it out of the tin easily.
In a bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until smooth or blend in a blender - I found it gives a smoother texture in a blender but by hand works just as well.
In a separate bowl, whisk the sugars with the oil then add the bananas and mix. 
Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt and combine. Fold through the chocolate chips and fudge bites and then spoon the batter into the prepared tin. 
Bake in the oven for 35 minutes then cover with foil and place in the oven a further 5-10 minutes until a knife inserted comes out clean. 
Leave to cool in the tin completely before removing onto a cooling rack. I melted a few squares of chocolate and drizzled this on top and then topped with more chocolate chips and fudge bites. Best kept at room temperature in an airtight container. Enjoy!
