A recipe (originally by Ann Tremont) my mother put in a cookbook that I have modified quite a bit. Every time I bring this to work, everyone wants a piece (and there's not enough to go around).

  1. Hand mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, walnuts, chocolate chips, and vanilla extract in mixing bowl until chocolate chips and walnuts are evenly spread out throughout mixture.
  2. In another bowl, mash bananas and add to the main mixing bowl.
  3. Soften the butter (I microwave for 20 seconds) and add to the main mixing bowl.
  4. Add two whole eggs to main mixing bowl.
  5. Mix all ingredients together by hand until it has a batter-like consistency.
  6. Pour into greased loaf pan.
  7. Let mixture set for at least 20 minutes before baking (Preheat the oven to 325°F).
  8. Bake at 325°F for 65 minutes (may take longer depending on the oven and altitude).
  9. When finished baking, it is best to let it set overnight before serving.
  10. ---.
  11. An optional recipe: Instead of the chocolate chips, use 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to make Cinnamon Banana Nut Bread.
