Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Lots of chocolate and lightly banana flavored.  I actually made this recipe into cupcakes for the picnic and they turned out great.  I do look forward to making this in bread form next time since I think the density will make it even more moist.  Here is a link to a picture of the bread.

Double Chocolate Banana Bread
The Sister's Cafe

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cup mashed bananas (about 3 and the browner, the better)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (dutch process suggested)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips ( I used Gittard brand milk chocolate because they are so yummy and they are also double the size of a normal chocolate chip)

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray bottom of 8x4 loaf pan with cooking spray.

beat sugar, eggs, and oil in lrg. bowl at med speed until combined.  Beat in bananas and vanilla at low speed.  Combine flour, cocoa, soda and salt in a med bowl: beat into banana mixture at low speed just until combines.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Bake 60 to 70 minutes (about 10 minutes if making cupcakes) or until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool ten minutes.  Remove from pan and cool completely or wire rack.
