Banana Bread with Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chips

It doesn't get any yummier than this. Seriously add chocolate chips to anything and my kids will eat it. It's not listed in the ingredients but I also add brown rice protein to the recipe, I like to hide as much protein as I can in pastries and breads for the 5 year old vegetarian in our house.

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 medium bananas, mashed
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
2/4 cup cottage cheese
1 large egg
2 Tbs. canola oil
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.
Coat loaf pan with oil or cooking spray, whichever you prefer. Combine dry ingredients and mix well. In a separate bowl combine wet ingredients, once completely mixed add wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until combined. Scrape batter into loaf pan.
Bake 40-50 minutes or until knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool completely and then slice and serve.
