Ultimate Banana Bread

The most requested decadent ultimate banana bread recipe in the house. The girls request this version of moist banana bread the most. Our version of what we call the ultimate banana bread.
What makes it ULTIMATE is all the extras you throw in there. Chewy, dense and moist with lots of crunchy additions.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Recipe by Elaine Lewis @
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
Cooking Directions
  1. Mash bananas first and mix in yolks in large bowl or with mixer. Add remaining ingredients into same bowl. Mix well. Fold in nuts, coconut and chips. Bake in a greased loaf pan or two small loaf pans at 350 degrees for one hour checking with a toothpick to come out clean. If you use the smaller loaf pans start checking for doneness at 45 minutes.
I like to bake in two smaller loaf pans so I can freeze one but mostly because I like to have my banana bread done all the way through without the edges getting burned or too done.
