Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

August 24, 2012

This banana bread can be made in just a few minutes and is SO good!  It is a great thing to do with those bananas that go ripe too fast.  And – only 3 -4 ingredients!   Put your bananas in the freezer, peel and all, until you have enough bananas to make this recipe. You will never want to throw old bananas away again…. or, you will purposely let them go bad just so you can make this delicious bread!

3 – 4 over ripe bananas

2 eggs

1 yellow cake mix

1 cup chocolate chips – I like using the mini chocolate chips but the regular ones work fine too.

1) Beat bananas

2) Add eggs

3) Add cake mix

4) Add chocolate chips

5) Grease and flour a large loaf pan or spray with a baking spray with flour.

6) Bake at 350 degrees for 55 – 60 minutes or longer.  It is very important to insert a toothpick in the middle of the loaf, in several places, to check to make sure it is done.   If it is at all sticky or even damp, continue baking for a few more minutes.  If you take it out too early, it will sink and be gooey in the middle.

This batter can also be made into cupcakes. I baked them at 350 degrees for 17 minutes.

Or, this can be made into 4 small loaves.

Loaf and cupcakes freeze well.

Weight Watchers:  The total PointsPlus of the entire loaf with the chocolate chips  is 70 PointsPlus.  Without the chocolate chips it is 47 PointsPlus.  If made into 24 muffins – 3 points each with chocolate chip, 2 points without chocolate chips.
