Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

My mom has been making this banana bread since I was a little girl.  As an adult, I added the chocolate chips part, because what woman wouldn't want a little chocolate?! It is SO simple, easy and tasty and I get requests for this banana bread all the time.  Now, I have to tell you, this is a secret family recipe that I don't share with just anyone, so you better not tell!  LOL...Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
By: Melanie H.

3-4 black* bananas
1 egg
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 1/2 c. Flour
1 c. white sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 bag of milk chocolate chips (or more, if needed)

Mix first three ingredients, then add dry ingredients.  Mix thoroughly and turn into greased bread pan.  Bake at 325 for approximately 60 minutes.  The time and temperature should be adjusted for your area.  I bake it between 325-350 degrees for 55-65 min, so just keep an eye on it. 

*This is the key to this recipe.  The bananas HAVE to be all black and look nasty.  I once had a friend who tried my recipe, chickened out with her rotten bananas and decided to use yellow ones instead.  Guess what, her banana bread tasted awful!  I promise the black bananas work and you won't get sick.   Tip:  when your bananas get gross-looking, throw them in the freezer and thaw when ready to use.  I pretty much have a pile in my freezer at all times :)!
