Description

A wonderful healthy little bread that is moist and full of little chocolate chips to give it that extra pop!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Banana, Mashed
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ⅓ cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ¼ cups Mini Chocolate Chips

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray either 1 loaf pan or 2 mini loaf pans with cooking spray, set aside.

In medium bowl add the banana. Use a potato masher, fork, or spoon to squish the banana. It is alright for there to be small chunks of banana in the batter, but you want most of the banana to be reduced to mush. Add the butter and eggs and mix well together.

In another bowl combine sugar, flours, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon.

Combine the flour mixture with the banana mixture and mix until the ingredients are blended together. Fold in chocolate chips.

Pour the dough into greased baking pans and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Small loaves take around 30 minutes, a regular size loaf takes around 40-50 minutes.

Remove from the oven. After they have cooled for 5 or 10 minutes the loaves can be removed from the pan to cool. Once they are cool they can be eaten or individually wrapped and frozen.

Enjoy!
