Banana-Nut-Chocolate Chip Quick Bread

October/November 2005

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (108 votes)

This banana quick bread is full of chocolate chips and toasted heart-healthy walnuts so you get a taste of nuts and chocolate in each bite. This version reduces the fat substantially and uses nonfat buttermilk to make the results extremely moist and tender.

I won't be making this again

The flavor cominations just didn't work for me, and it was dry despite the banana. I hate to not like an EatingWell recipe since they're one of my go-to sources, but this one just didn't deliver.

Dry and flavorless

Sorry to say that this banana bread was dry and flavorless. I guess you can't cut too much moisture out for less calories. I threw it out.


Due to ingredients on hand, I made a gluten free version with 1 1/2 c GF flour, 1c almond flour, almond milk, and coconut oil. I only had one banana on hand so I whipped it in the food processor and it turned out great.


Haven't tried this recipe yet, but I love how right next to the recipe there is a picture/moving video of an illustrated banana going bad with the caption 5 foods to never eat. Well-timed, or just ironic.....

Very good
Pleanty sweet enough

If your bananas are ripe enough, I don't think you'll have a problem with sweetness. They should have large brown spots on them and not stand up straight when you take the peel off.
My fiance and I both enjoyed this recipe (without the chocolate) and my sweet tooth is much bigger than his is. This has turned into my go-to recipe for over-ripe bananas.

moist, fast, yummy
