Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I've always loved banana bread. Unfortunately, the walnuts were always a turn off to me.  So, I was really excited when I found this recipe that didn't call for walnuts, but instead, chocolate chips! What more could a girl ask for?

This recipe is super quick and simple and it tastes amazing.  Let's get started!

Start by spraying your loaf pans with some Pam.

I am using a Stoneware and glass loaf pan (not pictured).

This recipe is enough to make two loaves so if you're only wanting one, just half the recipe!

For the first part of this recipe you will need:
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
pinch of salt

Whisk all of these ingredients together.

The recipe calls for 4 bananas, but I only had two on hand and it turned out just fine.

In a separate bowl, combine the following:
4 bananas (or if you're unprepared like I am, just two)
1 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Mix them all together!

Now, add the flour mixture a little at a time and mix.

Now for the good stuff, chocolate chips!
I used half of a standard bag of chocolate chips.

Now separate into two parts and put one in one loaf pan and one in the other.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes.

And then you're done! 

It turned out great, and it tastes amazing.

Here is the full, official recipe:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
Pinch of salt
4 medium bananas
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 bag of chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease two loaf pans; set aside
2.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.  In a separate bowl, combine bananas, sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla; mix well with mixer.  Add flour mixture and mix until completely blended.  Add chocolate chips and mix.
3. Divide the mixture into the two loaf pans. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until a thin knife inserted comes out clean.  If loaves become too dark before timer goes off, cover with foil.

Happy baking,
