Recipe: Banana Cinnamon Chip Bread

This bread was eaten by the kids and their friends so quick that I barely got a picture of it.  Like all banana breads it was easy to make, very moist, yet had a real kick of cinnamon from the chips.  What a nice flavour combination this was.

I found this recipe over at Recipe Girl. where her recipes and photography will inspire you.  She has lots of options for entertaining and a whole page dedicated to it.  She's also auditioning to host her own cooking show on Oprah and you can see her audition tape and vote here... (wait until you see her awsome kitchen!).

from Recipe Girl

1½ cups mashed ripe bananas (3 to 4 medium)
¼ cup melted butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup (packed) brown sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
handful of cinnamon baking chips (or any other kind of chips)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 5×8-inch loaf pan.

Mix bananas, butter, sugars, egg and vanilla in medium bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet and stir just until flour is incorporated. Stir in a handful of desired flavor of chips.

Pour into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle a few more chips on top of the batter. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

 Let cool in pan for 15 minutes, then turn out loaf onto rack to cool completely.  Yield: 1 loaf

Cooking Tips
*Sub 1/2 whole wheat flour if you’d like.
**Use any flavor chip that you wish, but the cinnamon chips are quite delicious!

  1. Glad you enjoyed, and thanks so much for the shout-out on the audition! So exciting!

  2. Sarah, that bread sounds absolutely delicious with the addition of cinnamon chips. I've never seen those up here but I've seen quite a few recipes calling for them. The next time I go to the States I think I'll stock up on them! I'd have to use chocolate chips in place of them which I'm sure would be delicious too. Great recipe, thanks!

  3. I thought right away, that my kids would love this bread. Cinnamon makes everything taste ten times better. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh yum! I am hoping to try it today!

    Thank you so much for sharing.

  5. I've never even heard of cinnamon chips before! I'll definitely have to check them out to use with this bread. It would be an incredible combination. Thanks so much for the post.

  6. Sarah, this looks delicious! I've never seen cinnamon chips before. I think I'm going to hunt them down the next time I'm at the store. I can already think of so many tasty ways to use them. Hope you had a great weekend!

  7. MMmmm I love me some banana bread, I think that is the best type of bread :D
