Chocolate-Chip Banana Bread Loaves
Makes 1 loaf or 12 mini loaves
1 1/2 cup AP flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sugar (I used 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (I used non-fat)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup mashed banana (2 large bananas, I used 2 and a 1/2)
2 tsp banana extract (can omit, but I wanted more of a banana punch!)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease loaf pan.
In bowl of your electric mixer, combine eggs, applesauce, sugar, vanilla and banana extract until you get a smooth mixture.
In another bowl sift to combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients into wet and mix until well combined. Add in mashed bananas and yogurt and mix. Toss chocolate chips with 1 tsp flour to coat, then add to batter, stir to combine.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Approx. 1 hour for standard loaf, 30 minutes for mini loaves or muffins.
