Chocolate Chip Banana Bars are delicious, filling, and perfect for any time! Packed with 5 ripe bananas & whole wheat flour they're sweet & satisfying.I’ve made these tasty treats for years and our family can’t get enough! They’re perfect for a snack, but I also like to eat them for breakfast. They’re chock full of bananas and I use whole wheat flour to make them more filling. I know the addition of cinnamon may seem a little different, but I encourage you to try it. It adds just a nice pop of flavor. Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Banana Bars

  • 5 very ripe bananas (about 1 2/3 cup)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup oil (any type- I use coconut)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup flour (I regularly swap out all-purpose flour for whole wheat!)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips, divided
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 15×10.5″ pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Peel bananas and mash well. Stir in brown sugar, oil, milk and eggs until combined.
  3. Add in dry ingredients and stir. Fold in 1/2 the chocolate chips.
  4. Spread the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle remaining chips on top. Bake 18-22 minutes, until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Cool completely and cut into squares.

Yields 24 bars.

I like to make a batch, then cool, cut and freeze in individual baggies. Since they’re filling, they make a wonderful snack, breakfast or school lunch addition.

  1. The Banana Bread Chocolate Chip Squares were great. Very moist and yummy. The only thing I added was 2 tsp of vanilla and a dash of lemon juice on the bananas.
    • You can use Almond/ Cashew milk in it's place! Just don't bake with soy milk, that never works for me. :) You can just use water too if you'd like.
  2. I was so happy to see you were selling instruction on how to do a food video, but then it went to Amazon and is only available to purchase on a kindle and I don't have one. Is there any way to get a hard copy?
  3. I don't have that size pan, any suggestions as far as what size pan would also work, such as 9x13? And how I should adjust the baking time?
    • I think a 9X13 would work fine, just increase the baking time to 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. I made these bars today, but I used King Arthur's Gluten Free Measure for Measure flour - which made them Gluten Free and safe for me :D They were Fabulous! Wow! I also added 1 tsp of vanilla flavoring. This recipe is a keeper, thank you so much for sharing!
  5. Can I substitute almond milk in place of regular milk and applesauce or flax eggs in place of the egg to make this vegan?
  6. In the oven now. Cut recipe in half for a 7x11 pan. Subbed 1/2 white whole wheat flour, and threw in 1/4 cup whole oats. Batter very tasty, cinnamon adds enough of a kick didn't add vanilla.
    • So glad you enjoyed them! I LOVE the cinnamon addition, I'm happy you kept it in! Also, I regularly use all wheat flour and LOVE it. Even toss in 1 TBSP of flax. YUM.
  7. Update: Yum! About 17 minutes. About 1/2 hour start to finish. I did use VERY ripe bananas, no need for vanilla, and the 1/4 cup oatmeal worked fine.
  8. These were so good!!! Added cacao And just a little bit of butter. Also added some oats! They are really moisty! Love them!
  9. Does anyone know about how many calories are in these? I used Almond milk and added pecans and oats so it'll be a different amount, but curious where my starting point is. Thank you!
  10. I made these today.... didn't realize that I forgot to add the milk/oil in the mixture, until I scrolled through the comments. The finally product is delish. Planning to make this again..this time making sure to add the oil/milk. Thank you for the wonderful recipe.
  11. These were spectacular! We have always used frozen bananas with the liquor for flavor so I didn't read the bit about using one less or draining them until I had it mixed, so I threw in an extra few tablespoons of flour with the five undrained thawed bananas and chunked up some milk chocolate I had. They were so moist and the flavor was fantastic. I baked them in a cookie sheet and we had the best chocolate chunk banana bars for breakfast. I've never tasted anything like it and even my 5 yr old son who is in love with my peanut butter bars and super picky said he liked these way better. So don't be afraid to use all 5 frozen bananas and don't worry about draining them, just throw in about an extra 1/4 cup flour and you're off to the races!
  12. Just out of the oven Used drained frozen ban, only had reg c.c. grated them for the top.will freeze and send them to my college G.S Cut a small piece to sample---taste great warm--might take a bigger piece with a glass of milk!!
