Rating: 5 out of 5.

A few weekends ago, my wife got a craving for banana bread and came up with this delightfully modified spin that includes another favorite, chocolate chips. This recipe is now my new favorite, which is really saying something… Because I don’t really like bananas as a general rule.

Chocolate Banana Bread

3 ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 cub unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 pinch of salt

1/2 cup granulated white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 large egg, beaten

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup chocolate chips

1/4 cup un-sweetened coconut, shredded

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350 F

Grease and flour a 9″X5″ loaf pan

In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until they are the consistency of applesauce

Stir in the melted butter

Add baking soda and salt the banana mixture and mix

Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla extract and mix well

Add in the flower and stir until incorporated

Fold in most of the chocolate chips, reserving a few to sprinkle on top

Add in the coconut and stir

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan

Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top

Bake in the oven for about 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.

If you try it out, drop me a comment and let me know what you think. I found this particular version to be very addictive and wound up eating a whole loaf by myself.
