Tasty Tuesday--Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

We're really bad about not eating bananas fast enough in this house. I, for one, love bananas and always have. Andy on the other hand, kind of pretends to like bananas.  You should see his face when he's eating a banana. It's pretty funny. And then Birdie ends up eating half of a human. So, we end up wasting a lot of bananas and I am tired of it! This time I decided to use those over-rippened bananas to make this yummy bread.

1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 ripe bananas, mashed (1 cup mashed)
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a loaf pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Mix in the oil, bananas, and eggs. Stir in the chocolate chips (do not over-mix!) and pour into loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour, or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.

The original recipe is from Rachael Ray. She uses a full cup of sugar, but I didn't think it needed that much since the bananas are naturally sweet. It turned out really good, but I'm still not convinced it's the best. Might have to do some recipe hopping for the perfect banana bread. Do you have any suggestions?
