In a large mixing bowl add: Vanilla, Applesauce, Bananas and Eggs & mix well with a spoon. DO NOT puree the bananas, just mash them either with a potato masher or fork until they are about 1/2 inch pieces or chunks. I DO NOT use an electric mixer with this recipe. For some reason, it comes out better mixing it by hand! :)
Add the dry ingredients in a separate bowl & mix until well blended. Then add to the bowl with the wet ingredients. Mix well.
Add Chocolate Chips until mixed thoroughly into dough.
Grease a bread pan (both bottom & sides of pan).
Add Banana Bread Dough to the bread pan & bake at 350 degrees for about an hour (60-75 minutes) depending on your oven.
Cool on cooling rack or oven burner for about an hour. Slice & enjoy.
