Chocolate Banana Bread

I will confess that I am not a huge banana bread fan.  Banana isn't even a flavor of anything I would choose.  This recipe however? Pretty tasty and easy.  Plus by now you know that if I add it to this blog, it's a good recipe, right? Right.

Chocolate Banana Bread
3 very ripe bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar 
1 teaspoon salt 
1 large egg 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 cup chocolate chips (your choice, maybe even white chocolate?)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 5 by 9in pan. 

Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and allspice. Set aside

Mash bananas in a large bowl. Using a hand mixer: Combine with sugar, butter and salt. Mix in egg and vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture to banana mixture. Don't over mix. Stir in chocolate chips. 

Pour into prepared pan and bake for approximately an hour.  Test with toothpick or watch for sides to pull away from pan. 

Enjoy! Even you non-banana bread fans! :)
