Perfectly yummy soft banana bread sliced warm and spread with real butter. Mmmmmmmmmmm….
But- It can be made even better with the addition of semi-sweet chocolate chips….
Because everything is better with chocolate!

In a medium mixing bowl, add all ingredients except chocolate chips
and mix well.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Spread batter into the loaf pan.
Bake 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. If not done, reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking 5 – 10 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
