Rachael Ray's Banana Chocolate Chip bread

I love banana bread. I think that I keep buying bunches of bananas just so I have an excuse to make banana bread when they turn very ripe. This recipe is easy and doesn't take long if you're pressed for time. This recipe makes one loaf.

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 bananas, mashed (1 cup mashed banana)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F .
  2. Grease and flour a 8 1/2-inch x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan (or use baking spray, such as Baker's Joy brand).
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, sugar, baking soda and salt. Mix in the oil, bananas and eggs. 
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 70-80 minutes. 
  5. Cool the loaf in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out and cool completely, right side up.
