I had a craving for something sweet last night, which is rare for me because I usually crave salty foods. I had over ripe banana's and an awesome recipe for banana nut bread so, I decided to use what I had on hand to make something sweet and give in to my craving.
Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Bread
- 1 stick unsalted butter softened
- 1/2 Cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 c. chopped pecans (or any other nut you prefer)
- 3 over ripe bananas mashed
- 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (I used more : -) )
- 2 eggs beaten
Preheat oven to 375
Cream eggs butter and sugar together. Add mashed bananas. Add flour 1 cup at a time and incorporate into batter. mix in soda. Add choc. chips and nuts. Generously grease a loaf pan with butter, and fill 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 45-50 minutes.
I like to eat these warm with butter (I know, how Paula Deen of me!) on top.
