Banana Bread

Ingredients: 4 large ripe banana's, 1 & 3/4 cup flour, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1 stick of room temperature butter, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 2 large eggs, 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, 1/3 chopped dark chocolate, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon on granulated sugar.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan.

Place the banana's in a microwave safe bowl and microwave about 4 minutes until nice and gooey.   In a separate bowl whisk together the flour & baking soda. 

Cream the butter with the banana's.  Add in the sugar and combine.  Add in the vanilla extract.  Slowly mix in the flour.  Once batter is well combined (it will be super sticky and gooey) mix in the walnuts and chocolate pieces.  Use a scraper to get it all into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the granulated sugar over the top.

Bake for about 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.  Cool completely on a wire wrack before slicing.
