Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This is one of the first desserts that my grandma taught me how to make.

The natural sweetness of the banana accompanied by significant amounts of chocolate chips make this a delicious classic dessert. Beware, one loaf of these wont last long!

  1. In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar together
  2.  Add eggs, crushed bananas, and vanilla
  3. In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda, salt- then add to creamed mixture
  4. Bake in a 8×4 loaf pan for 60 minutes at 350′ ( start checking for doneness after 45 minutes)  . Place a tooth pick in the centre of the bread to check for doneness- if it comes out clean, it’s ready!
