My sister-in-law shared this recipe with me.  She had seen it in a local paper where she lives and made it one afternoon.  She sent me me the recipe and said it was really delicious.  What makes this loaf different than a regular chocolate chip banana bread is that it has ginger.   I used the sweetened dry ginger that is shaped like a dried apricot.  You could also used the dry ginger that is packaged in strips.  The loaf turned out well and the ginger is a nice addition to the taste of bananas and chocolate chips.  It won't get take long to consume this loaf.

The ingredients have been mixed together.

Ready to go into the oven.

Ready for sampling.

Chocolate Ginger Banana Bread


2 cup flour            
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt            
¾ cup chocolate chips
½ cup chopped ginger            
½ cup butter, softened
¾ cup sugar            
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla           
2 very large bananas (1 cup)
½ cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt


In a medium size mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt.  Stir in the chocolate chips and ginger. 

Using an  electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in the eggs and vanilla, then add mashed banana and sour cream.

Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture.

Pour into a 9x5 inch sprayed loaf pan; bake at 350°F about 50 minutes or until a toothpick tests clean.  Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes and then turn out of the pan.
