Baking: Banana Bread

I love the smell of baking in the morning,
especially something as delicious as

The whole house begins to fill with the sweet aroma
and you can't wait to have a taste :}

We go through A LOT of bananas at our house,
but every once in a while they get a little more ripe then we like,
so the next step is to make some banana bread!

I use a recipe that my Step-mom gave me
and a few touches of my own ;}


1/2 c. softened butter (not melted)
1 c. sugar
3 very ripe bananas
2 eggs well beaten
1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. plain oats or oatmeal
1/2 c. nuts (I use chopped walnuts)
1/2 c. chocolate chips (my special ingredient)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix butter, sugar, eggs & bananas with a hand mixer until soft (will be a little lumpy because of the bananas).

In a seperate bowl, sift flour, salt, and baking soda. Add oatmeal to dry ingredients. Mix into wet ingredients a little at a time until completely mixed. Add nuts and chocolate chips.

Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 50-55 min.

Delicious! Can also be doubled :)
