The chunky monkey trio.
How about chunky monkey pancakes?
Chunky Monkey Banana Bread!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour bread pan.
Cream 1 stick softened unsalted butter with 1 cup of sugar. Add 2 eggs, one at a time. In a separate small bowl, combine 1 and 1/2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon of salt. Add to wet mixture on low speed until just combined. Add 1 cup of mashed bananas, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Mix until blended. By hand, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (I like to use mini chips) and 1/4 to 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, depending on how nutty and chocolatey you like it. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake for about 1 hour or until golden brown and toothpick/cake tester inserted in the center comes out dry. Cool in pan on rack for 5-10 minutes. Flip out of pan and cool completely.
Yum! Kind of crisp on the outside and moist and delicious on the inside.
