Mom's Banana Bread

This is how our bananas looked this morning. Ugly enough that the kids won't eat them anymore but just right for yummy banana bread. I've always used my mother's recipe because first off it's delicious but also because it's easy. Her recipe didn't call for chocolate chips but I have a love for chocolate and bananas!! I also sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top of the batter right before I put them in the oven to bake. Yummy!! 

Mash your bananas. I just throw the bananas into my kitchen aid mixer with the paddle attachment first and let it mix them up then mix all ingredients together EXCEPT for nuts and chocolate chips.

Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula. Divide batter into greased pans and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Let cool in pans for a few minutes then turn out onto cooling rack.
