Yes, this is the third time I've posted a variation on this banana bread recipe, and I don't even care. I want to shout from the rooftops how delicious this banana bread is! Everything is even more fantastic when you add chocolate, though, so this variation is pretty much just perfection. The banana bread itself has a rich, buttery taste, and a tender crumb. The chocolate chips scattered throughout the loaf add a ton of flavor, and make it an extra indulgent treat! I had to send most of the loaf to work with my husband, for fear I would eat the whole thing by myself during his night shift. :) I recently invested in some nice bread pans (instead of continuing to use the $3 pans I got for my wedding 14 years ago), and this was the perfect recipe to try them out! My kids said this is the best banana bread they've ever had, and they couldn't get enough of it, so it's definitely one to make again. Yum!
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons milk
3 overripe bananas, mashed
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325. Grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan and set aside. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla, milk, and mashed bananas, and mix until smooth. Add the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder, and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips, and pour into the prepared loaf pan. Bake 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
