Did someone ask if I have a delicious dessert recipe? Well, actually yes I do! I have been making homemade banana bread lately. It's really good, and so easy. The only bad thing about this bread is that it's so good it doesn't last. Makes a great pot luck contribution or gift for a friend who you secretly wish would get fat.

Ms. Delfino's Yummariffic Banana Bread

1 tablespoon butter very soft
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
3 very ripe bananas
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour
1/4 cup milk (I recommend vanilla rice milk)
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tbsp cinnamon

Mush up sugar, butter, add milk, add bananas, chips, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, slowly add and work in flour as you go. Dump the goo into a small square bread loaf pan. Cook at 350 for about 45 mins, less if you like it very soft, longer if you like it firmer.

NOTES: Can substitute butter for margarine and exclude chips or use carob chips -- that will make it vegan if you use rice milk. Can add nuts, can use 1 cup brown sugar instead of 1/2 cup white sugar. Can use honey or agave to sweeten in place of sugar. Delish!! Banana bread bake off -- my place!

Voila! Low in fat, very freaking yummy!
