Recipe - Banana Nut Bread with Chocolate Chips

To my delight, I had some bananas ripen on us this week, which resulted in some delicious banana nut bread. It is one of Greg and my favorite breakfast treats. I always add chocolate chips to mine, as I seem to do with just about everything, to make it that much sweeter. I'm sure everyone has their own version of this recipe, but I thought I'd share mine anyway.

Banana Nut Bread with Chocolate Chips

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 cup walnut chips
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 soft, ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream sugar and shortening; add eggs, flour, baking soda, bananas, nuts and chocolate chips. Pour batter into a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 325 degrees for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Check after an hour, and every subsequent 5-10 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean when poked in the center.
