Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

With the amount of bananas that we go through in my house in a week, it is amazing that we ever have any left over to make banana bread - but sometimes it does happen. I have a standard banana bread recipe that I use, but I wanted to try something a bit different this time... Glad that I did!! I have already made it again since I tried it for the first time a week ago....

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
(recipe found at

1 stick butter
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sour cream
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed bananas
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 chopped pecans (optional)

Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, vanilla and sour cream. Mix flour baking powder, baking soda, and salt in separate bowl. Slowly add to sugar mixture. Fold in bananas, nuts and chocolate chips. Pour into 2 loaf pans or 2 muffin pans or 1 of each. Bake at 325 for 1 hour in a loaf pan or 25 minutes in a muffin pan.
