2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas
chocolate chips (optional, but highly recommended)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour and baking soda. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to make sure everything is mixed. Add chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 60-65 minutes, until a knife inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack.
