Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This is a classic banana bread – moist and full of chocolate chips! This recipe is one of my family’s favorites that I make on a sometimes weekly basis. I am the only regular banana eater in the house (besides my dog – he can hear me peeling a banana from the opposite end of the house and comes running) but keep buying them every week because my kids request the banana bread. A great way to use your overripe bananas, this loaf makes a great hostess gift, plus it freezes well tightly wrapped in foil the freezer for up to 3 months.

Ingredients

Preparation

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.

Grease and flour a 8 1/2-inch x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan [1] (or use baking spray).

In a large bowl [2], whisk [3] together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Mix in the oil, bananas, and eggs. Stir in the chocolate chips (do not over-mix!) and pour into the prepared pan [1]. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 60-80 minutes. Cool the loaf in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out and cool completely, right side up.
