Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

(Oops... hit "publish" on accident before finishing the post, lol!  Here is the rest:)

One of my cooking friends made this bread, and it looked and sounded so good that I wanted to make it too.  Well, it was good!  The pb/chocolate combo made it taste almost cake-like.  But the recipe is actually quite healthy, using all whole wheat pastry flour, raw sugar, plain yogurt, and just a bit of oil.  I enjoyed quite a bit of this.  :) 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
from Food

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar OR 3/4 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 medium bananas, mashed (very ripe)
1/3 cup unsweetened crunchy peanut butter
1/4 cup plain yogurt (I used Greek)
1 large egg
2 tablespoons canola or sunflower oil
1/2 - 3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat standard loaf pan with cooking spray.

2.  Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl.  Whisk together mashed bananas, peanut butter, yogurt, egg, and oil.  Stir banana mixture into flour mixture until combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Scrape batter into loaf pan.

3.  Bake 40-50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out with few moist crumbs.  Cool in pan on rack 15 minutes.  Unmold then cool completely before slicing.
