Clean Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I have had this recipe bookmarked for a long time - my neighbor's treats are always so yummy, I knew this recipe would not disappoint!  I did make a few changes to make the recipe healthier and cleaner.  The addition of the chocolate chips makes this a great dessert! The kids love it too!  I liked this recipe much better than the previous one I posted.  Maybe because the bananas were more ripe, it was very moist and tasty!

1 c sucanat
1/2 c natural applesauce
2 eggs
2 c whole wheat flour
3 medium bananas mashed (very ripe!)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 c dark chocolate chips

  1. Cream sugar and applesaucel. 
  2. Beat in eggs. 
  3. Add bananas and beat until well mixed. 
  4. Blend in vanilla. 
  5. Add all dry ingredients and blend until well mixed.
  6. Fold in  chocolate chips.
  7. Bake in a loaf pan lightly greased. 
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour or until middle is cooked. Check with tooth pick.
  9. Let sit 1 minute on cooling rack before taking out of pan.
  10. After the bread is out of the pan let cool on rack until completely cooled. 
  11. I sliced and wrapped each slice in a piece of plastic wrap for grab and go snacking/desserts!
