Why we love Sourdough Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

If you’re like me– I was once only familiar with sour dough bread loaves which are very good but have a strong, sharp flavor to them. My collection of sourdough recipes using sour dough start that I share with you are much more mild.  

The sourdough starter just adds a little bit of ‘tang’ to it and let me tell you it’s a tang you want to experience! It’s a whole new flavor accent that I completely adore!

If you need more info on sourdough starts then our The Ultimate Sourdough Starter Guide is right up your alley!

How to make Sourdough Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

  • Preheat oven 350 degrees F.
  • Coat 9×5 pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream butter.
  • Add sugars and cream 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg; mix 2 minutes.
  • Add vanilla, sourdough start, and mashed banana; mix to incorporate.
  • In a separate bowl combine flour, sea salt, and baking soda; use a whisk to combine.
  • Add flour mixture all at once to wet ingredients; mix until 80% incorporated.
  • Add mini semi-sweet chocolate chips; gently mix with spatula to combine.
  • Do not over mix- a few lumps are okay.
  • Evenly spread batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake 45-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center removes clean.
  • If at 45 minutes the top of the loaf looks very browned, set a piece of foil over the top to protect over browning. ( I needed to do this)
  • Cool on rack for 10 minutes, turn out and complete cooling.
  • Enjoy your Sourdough Chocolate Chip Banana Bread!

Helpful baking tips for higher elevations

  • If you live 3,000 feet above sea level or more it is considered high elevation and may take longer to cook/bake. 
  • Adjustments are needed for 5000+ feet and above:
  • Reduce baking powder: for each teaspoon, decrease 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon.
  • Reduce sugar: for each cup, decrease 2 tablespoons.
  • Increase liquid: for each cup, add 2 to 4 tablespoons.
  • Increase oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
  • Check if it is done a little early.
  • This takes some trial and error to get it right for you.
