Chocolate Chip Banana Bread


If you like banana bread, and chocolate you will LOVE this bread.  Holy moly.  This recipe is based of this {banana bread} recipe that was my college roommate's.   The discovery of Chocolate Chip Banana Bread happened when I had a little batter left over from making banana bread to send to Tall Tan Man.  I was having one of my super cool Friday nights...take out...red box...craft project...and maybe a new recipe to try. Have you ever read the sticker on the bananas?


haha I laughed out loud at Target when I read it.  Okay, back to my favorite new addiction {slightly embarrassed to say I made this twice in one week...}.  I made these in a adorable mini loaf pan.  I found the pan at the kitchen outlet store at the Allen Outlet Mall.  The recipe yields 10 mini loafs, 1 large loaf, or 20 muffins.
 
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 3/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 2/3 cup Oil
  • 1 1/2 cups Sugar
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt {I used Fage}
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees, and grease your pan.

2.  In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside. 

3.  Go ahead and beat your eggs, and mash the bananas.


4.  In a large mixing bowl combine oil, sugar, beaten eggs, mashed bananas, and Greek yogurt. Mix until well combined.  Scrape down the sides and add vanilla.  Mix.

5.  Slowly add flour mixture into the mixing bowl. 

6.  Fold in chocolate chips. 


7.  Using a 1/2 measuring cup, fill tins 2/3 the way full. Sprinkle the tops of each with sugar {this will create a wonderfully crunchy  top}.


8.  Bake 25 - 30 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean {if your making a loaf it will take longer, I am making an assumption...I bet it would take about 45 minutes}.  


I promise you will love this!  :)  I am currently laying on my couch, and I have a 4 DAY WEEKEND!  Is it sad I am most excited about sleeping?  When did I get so old{ish}?  Speaking of old, I am pretty pumped about my Birthday being in exactly ONE week! 

AND I can't wait to see Tall Tan Man in 11 days!


Have a great Memorial Day weekend!!!
