National Banana Bread Day: Add Chocolate Chunks

Tomorrow is National Banana Bread Day, and I just love Banana Bread. Truly it's one of my favorite foods. What could be better than a great Banana Bread with Chocolate Chunks. What a way to celebrate National Banana Bread Day! Giving you a day's heads up, so you can make sure you have all the ingredients!

Banana Bread with Chocolate Chunks

2 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4-5 ounces dark chocolate (70-85% cacoa, organic, Fair trade) very coarsely chopped (I like them big)

Heat oven to 350ºF. Stir eggs, bananas, oil and milk until blended. Add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; stir until just moistened. Stir in chocolate.

Pour into greased 9x5 inch loaf pan. Bake for 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cook in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan to cool on wire rack.
