CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA BREAD
Every week I buy bananas and I usually have a few that end up going brown. Trying to commit to less waste in 2016 I immediately freeze the brown bananas so I have them at the ready when I have time to make banana bread!
This banana bread recipe is moist and full of chocolate chips!
1 1/2 cups flour (I use the one for one gluten-free mix from Costco)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs lightly beaten
3 bananas, mashed up
1 cup chocolate chips or walnuts if you want something less sweet!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease and flour 8 1/2 inch by 4 1/2 inch loaf pan (I use butter and then shake some flour around) DO NOT skip this step as it will make life easier when trying to get the banana bread easily out the pan.
In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl stir together oil, bananas and eggs. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, stirring by hand, do not over mix! Bake 60 to 80 minutes, depending on your oven. Around 60 minutes check with a toothpick and go from there. When banana bread is finished take out of oven, let sit for 10 minutes and then eat!
TOTAL COST: $2.50 (since I am buying most of the ingredients in bulk)
I can usually get 8 pieces of banana bread from one loaf so that works out to be 31 cents per piece! Huge savings compared to a coffee shop or bakery and you know exactly what is in the recipe!
