Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

YIELD: 8”x4” loaf pan

What to do with overripe bananas? Make banana bread, of course!

This is the best recipe for chocolate chip banana bread. It’s moist yet dense with a caramelized, oven-baked crust and just the right amount of sweetness.

AND your vegan and gluten-free friends will love it! Mori-Nu Silken Tofu acts as an egg alternative in this vegan banana bread recipe, binding the ingredients together and adding moisture for that perfect banana bread texture. For a gluten-free banana bread, make sure to use gluten-free flour and check labels on other ingredients.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread



  • 3/4 cup puréed Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2-3 bananas)

  4. In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Do not over-mix!
  6. Fold in chocolate chips and pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  7. Bake for 1 hour or until skewer inserted in center comes out mostly clean.

  • Purée a full package of Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm, then divide as needed for this recipe and other recipes.
  • Refrigerate any remaining tofu.
  • Bananas should be super ripe with brown spots on the peel, but not rotten.
  • To mash bananas, simply peel them, then mash with a fork.
  • Chopped nuts can be used in place of chocolate chips.
  • Fully cooled bread will be easier to slice.
  • PLANT-BASED: This recipe uses only plant-based ingredients. Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm takes the place of eggs and gives this bread a moist crumb while adding plant-based protein.
  • GLUTEN-FREE: We used gluten-free 1-to-1 baking flour with great results! Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm is Certified Gluten Free.
