Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I don't like overripe bananas. They don't look very appealing to me, even though they can still be eaten. I know most of you will think I am so picky, but overripe bananas are nothing more than an ingredient for a dessert to me. 

I had two sad looking bananas in my kitchen the other day and I couldn't decide what to do with them. I didn't want to overheat the house by turning on the oven, but when I saw this recipe I just had to.
This is my first time ever baking a banana bread. I am always reserved when it comes to desserts with bananas because the flavor is mostly too dominant and I don't like that. I have to say this is my favorite banana recipe so far because it is so moist and tastes great, the bananas are not dominant and the chocolate chips make the bread so chocolaty and amazing. That is why I call it a chocolate chip banana bread, with the chocolate on first place because you can never have enough chocolate chips in it.

You need:

2 ripe bananas, smashed
1 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
1 egg, beaten
1 tea spoon vanilla
1 tea spoon baking soda
dash of salt

Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a loaf pan. Smash the bananas in a mixing bowl and add the butter. Mix in the sugar, egg and vanilla. Stir and add the baking soda, salt and flour. Mix well and finally mix in the choc chips. Pour batter in a loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes.
