Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread2

Better than plain old banana bread, this one is decadent and delicious with huge chunks of melty chocolate and crunchy pieces of pecans. You could serve this warm for dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or just slice and tuck into school lunch boxes for a treat.

2 eggs, beaten
1 cup mashed banana
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
8 oz of semi sweet chocolate chunks, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans
coarse sugar (I use sugar in the raw) to sprinkle on top before baking.

Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl, mix together the milk, eggs, oil, and bananas until blended. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add to wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate and nuts. Pour into a greased loaf pan and top with a sprinkle of coarse sugar to get a crunchy top (optional)

Bake at 350 F for about 60 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

Makes 1 loaf.
