  •  35 mins


  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup mashed bananas (approx. 2 small bananas)
  • 1/2 cup Mazola® Corn Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • As needed Mazola® Canola or Butter Flavored Cooking Spray


Preheat oven to 350℉.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium mixing bowl.

Whisk together egg, bananas, oil and vanilla. Add to flour mixture and stir until flour is moistened. Fold in walnuts and chocolate chips.

Spray 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 loaf pan with cooking spray. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. A wooden pick inserted in the center should come out clean. Transfer loaf pan to a rack to cool for 10 minutes before turning out of pan. Serve warm or store in an air-tight container.

TIP: reserve 2 tablespoons of the walnuts and use to sprinkle on top before baking.
