Servings per recipe: 10-12
Canola oil spray
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
3 eggs, beaten
3 cups flour
4 to 5 medium bananas, mashed
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, optional
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan with the spray.
In a large bowl, combine the oil, sugar, eggs, flour, bananas, chocolate
chips, buttermilk, baking soda, salt, and nuts, if using, and stir until just
blended. Pour the batter into the pan and bake about one hour, until
the top is lightly golden brown and the sides pull away from edges of
pan. Remove the pan from oven and cool. Slice the bread and serve
with canola margarine.
It always seems like we have ripe bananas sitting on the counter: Does this sound familiar? This recipe was quickly created when the Coleman family discovered how the flavors of bananas and chocolate go together like a hand in a glove. Enjoy!
