Chocolate Brownie Banana Bread

This was YUMMY! It was like eating dessert for breakfast. I used 3 large bananas in this recipe. I think my loaf pans were a bit bigger, so the bread didn't get real tall. I have some bananas in the freezer and WILL be making this again soon.

Chocolate Brownie Banana Bread

1¼ cups mashed RIPE bananas
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1½ cups white flour
½ cup baking cocoa (regular or dark)
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Beat all of the wet ingredients together with the sugar until it is well combined and smooth. Beat in the dry ingredients just until well combined, then stir in the nuts and chocolate chips.

Bake the brownie bread in TWO greased 8" x 4" loaf pans, in a pre-heated 350 oven for 45 minutes. Cool the bread in the pans for about 10 minutes, then turn out. IMMEDIATELY wrap the HOT loaves in plastic wrap (it will not melt the plastic) and let cool.
