Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

We've had two overripe bananas sitting on the counter for two days - it was time to take action.

McTatty's Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

1 2/3 cup flour
1 cup plus 2 tbsp sugar, or just one cup is fine too - if you're feeling sugary, add more
2 LARGE eggs
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves (yes, secret ingredient, smells awesome in the oven!)
1/4 tsp allspice
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup oil
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips, just tossed in a little flour

Cream eggs, sugar and butter until light and fluffy. I didn't do that last night, but it still turned out good - even just whisking the eggs, sugar and melted butter together works just fine!

Mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the dry to the egg-sugar-butter mixture. Add the oil, the vanilla, and the chocolate chips. Combine by folding together. Pour into a 9x4 or 9x5 bread pan and bake at 350 for 40-60 minutes. Just until toothpick comes out clean.

The outside will be brown and crusty while the inside will be nice and fluffy!
