The Amazing Chocolate-Chip Banana Breadini (recipe)

It's like magic. I make this banana bread, and it disappears. This is one of the first things my mom let me make...the banana smooshing is really fun.

Here are my top 3 banana thoughts:
1. How is a banana on the street like music? If you don't C sharp, you'll B flat.
2. What is yellow and goes buzzzzzz? An electric banana.
3. Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like bananas.


Stuff You Need
3 super-ripe bananas (the mushier, the better)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
Dash of salt
1 egg
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Cooking spray

Equipment You Need
Loaf pan
Large bowl
Fork or potato masher
Small microwave safe bowl
Stirring spoon or spatula
Measuring cup
Measuring spoons

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a loaf pan with cooking spray. (Here's a cooking spray tip: the drops from the spay will make the floor very, very slippery so always spray over the sink.)

Peel and mash the bananas in a large bowl. Add flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and egg.

Melt butter in microwave and add it to bowl. Stir all of the stuff together until it is mixed up.

Pour the batter in greased loaf pan and sprinkle on the chocolate chips. If you absolutely love chocolate like my sisters do, add a few more chips. Bake for 60-70 minutes until a toothpick put in the middle of the loaf comes out without any gunk on it.
