Print Recipe


  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 over-ripe bananas
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease one 9x5" loaf pan or three 3x5.75" mini loaf pans.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars until smooth and fluffy. Add egg, mayo, and vanilla, and mix again until smooth.
  • Add your bananas and mix until well incorporated. The mixture will look a little watery and separated at this point, but don't worry: that's normal.
  • Add flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda to the bowl and mix just until evenly incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
  • Pour batter into large loaf pan or divide evenly between mini-loaf pans.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes for large loaf pan or 40-50 minutes for mini loaf pans, or until toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.


If using frozen bananas, let thaw completely before adding.
