my adaptation of James Beard's recipe
1-1/2 C. flour
1/2 C. whole wheat flour
1 C. mashed very ripe banana
1/3 C. milk
1 tsp. lemon juice (or vinegar)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 C. softened unsalted butter
1 C. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C. walnuts
1/2 C. mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease pan(s). Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl cream butter. Add sugar and mix thoroughly. Add eggs & banana. Combine milk and lemon juice in a small bowl. Slowly alternate mixing in flour mixture and milk mixture. Mix until completely incorporated. Add nuts and chocolate chips last. Sprinkle a little sugar on the top before they go in the oven for a sweet extra crunch on top.
Bake until toothpick comes out clean.
