Chocolate Chip & Walnut Banana Bread!!

I'm a sucker for a good banana recipe! I found this one a few years ago and I've made a few modifications over the years. I have it saved in a Word Doc and can't remember where I found the original that inspired me to make it, but I've made it every Christmas for the last few years!

It. Is. So. Good!

Here's what you need: 
 1/2 cup butter 
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cup flour 
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 bananas (ripe ones are easier to squish!)
1/2 cup milk 
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup dark chocolate chips

Pam or another cooking spray
Bundt Pan
Cookie Sheet!

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit! 

 Step 2: Chop up the butter and add it in with the sugar. 

 Step 3: Turn on the mixer and combine the sugar and butter until it looks like the picture above.

 Step 4: Add your eggs one at a time and mix them up until they are fully combined.

 Step 5: Combine all of the dry ingredients and whisk them together until the flour is fluffy. 

 Step 6: Mash up your three bananas with a fork. 

Step 7: Add the milk and vanilla to the mashed vanillas and mix it all up until it's combined. 

 Step 8: Add the liquid and dry mixture in small alternating increments. Mix it all until it's combined! I needed to scrap the sides with a rubber spatula just to make sure the flour didn't stick to the sides and then I mixed it up again.

 Step 9: Add your walnuts and chocolate chips to the mixture and combine until they are evenly dispersed through out the mixture. (Secret note: I always add a couple extra chocolate chips because it's the best part, obvs!)

 Step 10: Spray your bundt pan with cooking spray. The worst thing is when your cake sticks to the top when you flip it! 

 Step 11: Pour the mixture into the bundt pan! Put the pan on top of a cookie sheet to protect your oven in case of overflow (it's never happened, but I'm paranoid). Bake for an 1 to 1 hour and 15 minutes. It's done when you can stick a knife in it and it comes out clean. 

Step 12: Let it cool for a while and flip the banana bread out of the pan! It smells amazing and tastes even better!! Share it with all of your friends because it's the best breakfast (or treat) EVER!

I am cooking this tasty bread for the second time this season this morning!

Love you lots,
