I have literally been testing and tweaking recipes for months to find my favorite banana bread recipe. And this is it! We LOVE this yummy treat! It can be used to make two small loaf pans (8x 3.75x2.75 inches) or 18 muffins.

DIRECTIONS:
1. Combine butter, eggs, milk, vanilla and sugar. Mix well to combine.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk to combine and eliminate any lumps.
3. Add 1/2 of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mix until there are no lumps, then repeat with the other 1/2.
4. Add the mashed bananas and chocolate chips, mix gently to combine but don’t over mix. 
5. Fill 2 greased baking pans or 18 lined muffin tins with the batter. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top. 
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 16-18 minutes for Muffins, or 45 minutes for loaves. Test doneness by inserting a fork or toothpick and looking for only a few crumbs instead of wet batter remaining. 
7. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy! .

Confession: I do not own a loaf pan to bake these in (can’t find one I like in this size) but I find that the disposable, aluminum loaf pans always serve me quite well for this recipe! They come in the correct size, and bonus- it makes it really easy to give away! (8in x 3 3/4 in x 2 3/4 in)
