Bananas and chocolate chips combined with sunshine make for a super moist, slightly decadent, very delicious loaf.

Sun Oven Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips


1/4 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 1/4 cups sugar

2 eggs, at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 small, ripe bananas, coarsely mashed (about 1 cup)

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Set Sun Oven out to preheat. Coat a standard loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and the baking soda and set aside.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter with the sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Beat in the sour cream mixture and the vanilla extract. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour, salt, bananas, and chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake in the Sun Oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.

Cool on a rack in the pan for 15 minutes. Remove bread from the pan and cool completely on the rack.
