Flour's Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

We eat a lot of bananas and typically run out before the week's end.  Even when I try to buy extra to have for baking purposes we normally end up eating them all.  This week however we ended up with a few spares.  I am a big fan of banana bread and due to the banana issue banana bread because a few and far between treat. 

When I asked Mr. J on Sunday if he wanted some banana bread he enthusiastically said yes.  Miss O cooperated by taking a long nap allowing me to jump into the kitchen and bake some up.

I have posted several different banana bread recipes in the past.  There is the classic, with blueberries, with cinnamon, with chocolate chips, made with butter, made with oil.  I could go on and on. This one is a variation on the famous Flour's bakery recipe.  We didn't have a ton of butter on hand so I opted for this oil based recipe.  I left out the walnuts and added chocolate chips. 

This makes one dense banana bread loaf.  It is pretty darn tasty without the chocolate chips but that addition made this loaf a truly special treat.  We managed to do quite a bit of damage in the first 24 hours.  Miss O was in heaven when I gave her 1/2 slice for dessert the first night.  She was quickly frustrated that she ate those pieces so fast and didn't get more.
