Be sure to PIN it for later!

Instant Pot Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This quick bread is perfect for the Instant Pot as it will turn out moist and dense. Honestly, I had 6…no less than 6…banana’s that I was looking at earlier this weekend, and thinking…there’s no way I’m throwing these out! I love banana bread BUT one of the things I don’t like is how often I find myself cooking it way longer my recipe called for, or heating up my little Florida house for a lot longer than I need to. I thought, well, there is no need to heat up the house when I have my little magic pot so I decided to make Instant Pot Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.

Take two ripe banana’s (medium to large) and mash. You should end up with one cup of mashed banana. One of the thing’s I loved while testing this recipe is that I literally just dumped everything in a bowl mixed it up then put it in the Instant Pot to bake. No worries, and no babysitting. 🙂

Instant Pot Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Combine in a bowl or mixer all, and I mean ALL the ingredients.

Grease a 7-inch Bundt pan with melted butter, and pour batter into pan evenly.

Smooth down the batter. Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the Instant Pot.

Place the Bundt pan, uncovered, on the rack that came with your Instant Pot. Lower into the Instant Pot. Set to high pressure for 47 minutes.  Once done do a 15-minute quick release according to your Manufacturers directions. Be sure to remove the lid quickly as not to drip to much water onto the top of the uncovered bread. 😉

Note this can also be made in a 7-inch round pan, but this will increase the amount of high pressure time from 47 minutes to one hour. Do not use a glass bowl to make this as it will not cook through given the small base but large round top.

Remove from Instant Pot to a wire rack for 15 minutes.

  • Ok I have not tried baking bread in the Instant Pot and now I really want to! I can imagine how moist and evenly cooked it would be. I think I’ll be trying this recipe soon…just pinned! Thanks for sharing with us 🙂

  • I was just thinking yesterday that banana bread would look gorgeous in a Bundt pan. Yours looks fabulous. The addition of chocolate chips is always a winner. Thanks for sharing this!

  • Ooo what a good idea! I was just planning on borrowing my mom’s IP, and I think this should be on the “to make” list. I love banana bread!

  • I’ve got a ton of ripe bananas so this is perfect! I’m a sucker for a good banana bread and I never tried to make it in my IP. I’ll have to give it a try!

  • Thanks for the recipe! We LOVE everything banana around here and have never tried making banana bread in the Instant Pot. Can’t wait! Love that you added chocolate chips!

    • You are so welcome! We love it too! I have tons of leftover bananas this and I’m convinced the kids just wanted me to make it again! 😊

  • I cannot believe this was made in the instant pot, what an incredible gadget. I really should take mine out of the box already and make a delicious cake with it! Great way to use up brown bananas too 🙂

    • You definitely should take it out of the box! It’s a great appliance, and the banana bread is so much easier to make in it than in the oven! No need to babysit it, because it’s perfect every time! 🙂

      • I tried making this in my 6qt InstantPit. Only thing I did different was I I used a glass bowl.
        The inside wasn’t cooked and I added 10 more min. Still came out kinda gooey. Help

      • I would put it in the oven at 350 until baked. I would also add 25 minutes to the time for the different type of bowl or use a bundt pan next time.

  • What? You can bake a cake in the insta pot? Seriously, where have I been? I always have spotty bananas on the counter and I can’t wait to try this. Would love to have it waiting for me for breakfast one day this week.

  • We FINALLY got an Instant Pot but haven’t made any desserts yet – I LOVE that you can! And that this uses those bananas we have at the end of the week but also adds chocolate chips! Practical AND fun!

  • It’s time like these when I wish I had an Instant Pot! The chocolate chip banana bread looks so good and moist. How easy it looks. Perhaps I can ask Santa!

  • I haven’t tried making quick breads in my instant pot, but this post is making me want to whip up a batch today! We love banana bread, and I can’t wait to taste how it turns out in the IP. Love your pan, too. What pretty edges it gives the bread!

  • This is probably the best looking banana bread I’ve seen in a long time. Your technique of making it in the instant pot is genius, too. It reminds me of my grandmother’s “crock pot cake” which would “bake” in her crock pot for 2-3 hours. Love the chips you’ve added too.

  • I only have a 3qt IP since it is only my husband and me. Should I just do half a recipe’s worrh of batter? And cut the pressure time?

    • I don’t have a 3-quart, but if it were me yes I would half the batter, and experiment with half the time. It can always be finished in the oven if needed while you experiment with the time. 😊

  • 5 stars
    Delish! I didn’t have chocolate chips so I added pecans. My bundt pan is only 6 inches in diameter so I only filled 3/4 full and cooked for the same amount of time (47 minutes). I put the leftover batter into a tiny loaf pan and I’m experimenting with cook time. Hubby approved!

  • I was super excited to try this. Followed the first step and “mixed all ingredients”, only to find out the 1.5 cups of water was for the instant pot, and wasn’t supposed to be in the mix. Facepalm! Maybe I’ll try again tomorrow.
