Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

The basic recipe is just a traditional banana bread, but it takes on a new life once the chocolate is added. I must say, though, I do love banana bread in any shape or form.

The key to good banana bread is to not over-mix the batter. Once the liquid ingredients are added to the dry, mix the batter by hand just until the flour is moistened... for no more than about ten seconds. Too much mixing can cause the final product to be dry, tough or misshapen.
