Banana-Chocolate Bread

The bittersweet chocolate in this bread just makes it AMAZING! This would be classified as a dessert bread. YUM! And it adapted well for GF flour. (I found this recipe on the plantoeat site.)

1/2 cup butter (1 stick) room temperature
1 2/3 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp fine salt
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups bananas (3-4)
2 Tbs plain or vanilla yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a loaf pan with butter and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour through salt).
Using a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down the bowl as needed. Beat in bananas, yogurt, and vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture until just combined and stir in the chocolate. Pour batter into pan. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean from the center, about 60 minutes.
Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove and allow to finish cooling on a rack.

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
