The Best Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This is one hell of a yummy banana bread! I have been using this recipe for years now and highly doubt I will ever stray from it.We've become tight like that. Nice and moist, slightly buttery, laced with chocolate chips. My good God, yes, yes, YES!!
seriously the best chocolate chip banana bread!

You Need:
  • 1 and 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4 large bananas, very ripe, mashed very well
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped (totally optional)
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place walnuts on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, til lightly toasted. Let cool and chop em up.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, chocolate chips and nuts, if using. Set aside.
  4. In medium bowl, combine the mashed bananas, eggs, melted butter and vanilla and mix very well.
  5. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, just til incorporated.. DO NOT OVER MIX!!
  6. Pour into loaf pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, til golden brown and passes the handy dandy toothpick test. (I use a dry spaghetti noodle.)
  7. Let cool for 10 minutes in pan and then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  8. Dust with a tiny bit of powdered sugar and dig the hell in!! Mmmmm!
seriously, the best banana bread!
