chocolate chip banana bread

What to do when you have too many bananas?

Make Chocolate Chip Banana Bread of course!
Recipe by Martha Stewart.

Banana Loaf
·    3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan  (I used coconut oil)
·    2 cups all-purpose flour
·    2 teaspoons baking powder
·    3/4 teaspoon salt
·    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
·    1 1/4 cups sugar
·    3 large eggs
·    3 cups mashed medium very ripe bananas (about 6)
·    1 cup chopped toasted walnuts or chocolate chips

1.    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-by-5-by-3-inch (2-quart) loaf pan; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda; set aside.
2.    In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture in three additions, alternating with two additions of banana; mix until just combined. Stir in walnuts, if desired, by hand.
3.    Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached, 60 to 70 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes in pan, then turn out of pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.
