So what does one do? Freeze them of course. So when you have three over ripe bananas you can make banana bread. That's the thought. Sometimes it takes up to five frozen bananas for you to realize that you need to make banana bread, but that's okay. It happens.
Sometimes you might have extra chocolate chips hanging out in the pantry. Well, this girl likes bananas with chocolate. So why not toss that in too? Nothing like making some bread on a cold winter night!
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Note: recipe has been changed up, but original concept was from a recipe I found from Bon Appétit via my Epicurious App. Here's the original, but below is my modified ingredient list.
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup smashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Bake in a 325 degree oven until golden brown on top and toothpick comes out clean. This was about one hour for me, maybe 55 minutes. I let it sit in the pan for a few minutes before allowing it to completely cool on rack. Cut, enjoy!
