I am not much of a baker. I rarely make cookies and I have never attempted muffins or any sort of cake. But oh, how I love to make this super simple chocolate chip banana bread. My 6 year-old daughter loves to help me cook and I first discovered this recipe when she was around 3 and kept begging to help me bake something. It is so easy to make and so delicious!!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preparation ::

Cream sugar and butter; beat in the mashed bananas, eggs, and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients and stir into the first mixture just until moistened Fold in chocolate chips until well incorporated. Pour batter into greased and floured 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Cover loosely with a tent of aluminum foil. Bake at 325° for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for 3o to 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted tests done. Cool for 10 minutes, remove from pan and cool banana bread completely before slicing.
