After nearly a year of tweaking and taste-testing, I've finally created a recipe that tastes like home. This banana bread is so moist and sweet, that it borders on decadence. If you choose to add chocolate chips, then this bread starts to teeter between breakfast and dessert in the best way possible. —kaik
Combine the rest of the ingredients (excluding the chocolate chips, if using) in a small bowl. Slowly add it to the wet ingredients. The batter will be lumpy.
If you are adding chocolate chips, add them now.
Pour the batter into a greased 9inch loaf pan and bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
[Note: If you'd like to minimize the dishes you'll have to wash, feel free to mix everything in one bowl, without regard for the order you are adding your ingredients. I surely do not always mix the wet ingredients before adding the dry ingredients, and this recipe comes out wonderfully each time. This recipe also doubles and triples easily!]
