Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I was using up an over ripe banana today...


1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed banana (about 1 large)
1/2 cup buttermilk (you can substitute sour cream)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare a loaf pan with non-stick spray.

Beat butter and sugar together until creamed.

Beat in eggs, banana and vanilla. Stir in chocolate chips.  Fold in flour, baking soda and salt.

Note - I ran out of A-P flour and substituted 1 C pastry flour and 1/2 C wholewheat flour

Bake for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the top comes out clean.
