Chocolate Chip Banana Bars


When you have an abundance of ripe bananas, you should give this classic from Gran's book a whirl. This is the easiest recipe and is great for smoko or add yoghurt or ice cream for a yummy dessert. There are plenty of bananas in this recipe so I think you can call it a healthy snack to go with your cuppa...


  • 5 very ripe bananas about 1 2/3 cup

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup oil any type
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chocolate chips divided


Heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease or line with baking paper, a 40cm x 25cm tin.

Peel bananas and mash. Stir in brown sugar, oil, milk and eggs until combined. Add in dry ingredients and stir. Fold in 1/2 the chocolate chips.

Spread the batter into the prepared tin and sprinkle remaining chips on top. Bake 18-22 minutes, until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely and cut into squares.

Makes 24 bars.

Enjoy xx


  • I use chocolate drops or buttons because gran used to but i'm sure it would be just as scrummy with chips if that's what you have to hand.
  • Using coconut oil gives a lovely flavour
  • replace the flour with wholemeal flour to make them a little more filling
  • Eat one while they are still warm and the chocolate is all melty... so good (this reminds me so much of gran, she always let us take one before they ahve cooled on the bench!)
