Tested and Loved: Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe

I had overripe bananas so I looked for a banana bread recipe from my most favorite dessert recipe book: Hawaii's Best Local Desserts by Jean Watanabe Hee.  I found one combining banana bread with chocolate!  Perfect!

I ended up halving the recipe and skipping the lemon juice. It made three mini loaves for me.  Before giving any away, my son and I did a taste test. We liked it so much that we kept two loaves and gave away one.  

The original Chocolate Banana Bread recipe will yield: two 9x5 inch loaves. In a large bowl, beat 4 eggs with 1 cup vegetable oil. In another bowl, sift: 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt.  Add the dry to the wet and blend well.  Mix 3 cups mashed bananas with 1 teaspoon lemon juice and add to mix.  Mix in 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.  Grease loaf pans well before pouring in batter.  Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 55 minutes.  

Moist and delicious!

Hope you enjoy the bread as much as we did!
