Super Moist Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This is a great recipe for banana bread. I ran across an old recipe for banana bread, but I had remembered that it wasn't really moist. I am not a fan of dry banana bread, to banana bread just needs to be "super moist"! I think you will agree, that this is a very good and very moist recipe. Like any other banana bread, this is a very simple recipe.

Super Moist Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

3 large, very ripe bananas, mashed (approx. 1 1/3 C.)
1/4 C. butter, softened
1 C. white sugar
2 T. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 C. all purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 t. banana flavoring, ( if you do not have this, you may substitute 1 t. vanilla)
1/2 C. semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 8x4 loaf pan. 
In a large bowl, cream butter, brown and white sugars, banana flavoring (or vanilla). Beat in eggs and mashed bananas. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well with your creamed mixture and pour into loaf pan
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour.  * If you find the top of your bread is getting brown too quickly, slightly decrease heat.* The outside of this bread should be crisp and crunchy, while inside will be very moist.  Enjoy!
