With the coming of cooler temperatures, I do a lot more baking. Thankfully, my family are happy to eat what comes out of my oven, so I guess I must be doing an ok job at it. I had a few over-ripe bananas on the counter, so yesterday I whipped up one of our favourites - chocolate chip banana bread. It's great with my coffee in the mornings, or for a snack at any time. And there's no nuts, so it can go into school lunches too. We like to spread a little butter on ours.
The base of this recipe is from my Dad. Banana Bread was one of his specialties, so I had to get his recipe from him when I moved out oh so many years ago. The only change I've made is to add the chocolate chips, for an extra special touch. Enjoy!

Mix remaining dry ingredients.
Add dry ingredients to wet mixture and mix until well blended.
Fold in chocolate chips.

Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes. Top should be browned and loaf should be pulling away from the sides of your pan. Let sit in pan for 5-10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.
