This is another way you can make banana bread when you have those ripe bananas sitting on your counter. The recipe is really easy. You can enjoy it for breakfast or just as a snack anytime of the day.
When you cut into the chocolate banana bread you can see the melted chocolate chips all over, the walnuts and little pieces of banana. The bread is super moist, perfect with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee.
The banana breads were in the oven for exactly 65 minutes. Make sure to check the banana bread before taking it out of the oven because temperatures vary depending on oven.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
3 ripe mashed bananas
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup mini-chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Mix on medium speed all ingredients except the walnuts and chocolate chips. Then stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 60-65 minutes or until a wooden stick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool for about 10 minutes, then remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
