This is a variant on my mom's original recipe---and, I had some leftover chocolate chips, & threw them in! I love to bake--even if I don't feel great. I'm battling SII, B-Cell, Follicular NHL (Jan. '10). Currently in "Stable Remission" (8/5/11), & I have 3 more chemotherapy infusions.

How to Make Elizabeth's Quick Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Cream butter and sugar; add eggs. Beat well.
    Add bananas and flour, baking soda, salt and nuts. Throw in chocolate chips at the END of mixing!
    Pour in greased & floured, loaf pan.
    Bake at 350°F for @1 hour. (Check for doneness @ 45 minutes. Be careful NOT to overbake!) Check with toothpick, & if some chocolate is on it, put if in a couple more spots.

    **IF you have an inbetween amount of bananas (ex: 5), I adjusted the amounts accordingly---ex. 3/4 c. Butter, 1 1/4 c. Sugar, I did 2 tsp. Baking Soda). Basically, I tack on @ 1/4 more. If you have (6) bananas, just double recipe accordingly.
    --->If you have smaller loaf pans, CHECK time doneness with toothpick @ 30 minutes. They bake FASTER than typical large pans.
    I prefer Nestle MINI Chocolate Chips, because they are lighter, and don't usually float to the bottom of the pan during baking. And, it distributes the chocolate throughout the bread.
