Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas
1/3 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In your stand mixer or with a hand mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar.
While the butter and sugar are doing their thing, mash the bananas in a separate bowl.
Once the butter and sugar are creamed, add the eggs and banana, blend well.
Pour the banana mixture into the bowl with the flour. Fold into the flour until just moistened. Don't over-mix.
Add the chocolate chips, fold in gently.
Pour into prepared loaf pan, spread out evenly.
Bake for 60-65 minutes until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 5-10 minutes then turn the loaf out. Serve warm.
