I am SO not a fan of bananas but I am a huge fan of banana bread, go figure! A banana bread with dark chocolate and pecans? Sign me up!
This was a really great banana bread. I loved the crunchy pecans and the melty chocolate in every few bites were delicious.
* I did 1 cup all-purpose flour and 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour but you can do 2 cups of all-purpose.*

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar (can do up to 1 cup, I did 3/4 because my bananas were VERY ripe and VERY sweet already)

1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
