Salted Caramel & Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

My first recipe on here was a chocolate walnut banana bread. I’ve made that several times now and wanted to try something different. I altered my original recipe to make this one and this is by far the BEST so far! It was so moist and full of banana flavor. The salted caramel and chocolate morsels were perfect in it.

Ingredients

  1. 2 cups all purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  3. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  4. 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
  5. 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  6. 2 large eggs
  7. 4 very ripe bananas (don't mash until ready to mix)
  8. 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  9. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  10. 1/2 cup Hershey’s Salted Caramel Baking Chips
  11. 1/2 cup Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Baking Chips

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 400° & spray a glass 9×5 loaf pan with non stick spray.

  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. This will ensure all your ingredients mix well and you won’t overwork the batter.

  3. In a separate bowl lightly beat eggs with a fork. Mix in the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extra until well combined. Add in the butter and mix well. I used a hand mixer at this point to get the mixture smooth. Set this aside once smooth.

  4. In another bowl peel and mash your bananas really well. Then mix the mashed bananas in with your wet ingredients.

  5. Poor 1/3 of the dry ingredients into the wet, and using a spatula gently fold until combined. Repeat two more times until all the dry is combined with the wet. Then add the baking chips. Do not over mix the batter. You want the ingredients to all just come together.

  6. Pour into prepared baking dish and bake at 400° for 1 hour. Check for doneness by inserting a small knife in the center. It’s done if it comes out clean. Ovens vary so cooking time may be a little different.

  7. Remove from oven and let cool in baking dish for 30 minutes. After that remove from pan and cool for another hour on a rack.
