Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I got this recipe after baby decided bananas were so yesterday. I kept trying and trying. Buying more bananas and more bananas on the off chance that yesterday would be the new today. But no. So I did a little internet research and tried to find the EASIEST banana bread recipe I could. This is it. We like it and I can make it fast. HOWEVA, If you have a better one (even if it's sort of hard) please post it. I'm trying to broaden my horizons.

* 1 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup shortening
* 2 eggs
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 2 bananas, mashed
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. In a mixing bowl, cream sugar and shortening. Beat in eggs, vanilla and bananas until thoroughly blended. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture and stir just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Spoon into a greased 9-in.x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 60-70 minutes or until the bread tests done with a wooden pick. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

PS. This is not healthy.
