As everyone can see, eating healthier is NOT on our 2008 resolution agenda. How can we with so many left overs? We’re going green in 2008, so that means we must recycle uneaten foods. Now that we finally have rain and some chill factor, adding an extra layer of fat to further insulate us from this So Cal freeze (4o degrees, brrrr!!!) is a good idea. Baking will not only warm up our cold, damp house with oven warmth and the smells of baked goods, but it will also use up the tons of left over bananas and chocolate we have screaming out at us every day. It’s good to clear out our freezer with some old 2007 creamed delights too, so we’ll just top off this calorie packed, chocolate-chunk laden, carbo induced beauty with a small scoop of vanilla bean dream. This special banana bread recipe is the most moist one that we’ve been able to create so far. We’re planning on eating salad in the next day or two to use our left over greens, so there is a glimmer of healthy hope in our future.
Yield: 2 Loaves
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Bananas and chocolate, such a delectable combination. Make sure your bananas are nice and ripe. This recipe is written for 6 regular bananas, but if you can get your hands on the super plump, half-length beauties, the recipe will be all the better. This is one of my grandma's 4-x recipes (that means highly tasty.) It stays moist forever, or at least as long as a loaf has lasted in our house.
Preheat oven to 350º F.
