Ingredients you will need

  •  3 very ripe and sweet bananas
  • 1/3 cup of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups of flour
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips
  • ( ½ cup of mixed sugar and cinnamon for top sprinkle)

Baking instructions

 *Preheat oven to 350

Step 1 – Peel all the bananas in a big bowl and mash together until smooth ( will have a few lumps but that good.
Step 2 – Add into the same bowl the butter, baking soda, salt, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix all together until smooth.
Step 3 – Add in the flour in small amounts and fold in
Step 4 – Add in your chocolate chips – how much is totally up to you. I like to add a little sweetness but not too over powering…. But chocolate is chocolate so self-control may be difficult. Hah
Step 5 – Spray your bread pan or use butter.
Step 6 – Pour into the pan and level out the top a little with your spatula
Step 7 – Before you put your banana bread in the oven, I like to add sugar and cinnamon mix to the top! Adds a little pizazz to the flavor.
Step 8 – Bake your banana bread for 55 minutes at 350 or until well done.
Step 9 – Enjoy! And let me know how yours turned out!
