Banana Cinnamon Chip Bread

I know what you're thinking. . . another recipe for banana bread?!  What!  Yes, another banana bread recipe.  I like banana bread and this one is very good.  I bought my cinnamon chips at Prepared Pantry's online website.  They are so good.  They almost melt into the bread.  

Banana Cinnamon Chip Bread with
Cinnamon Sugar Topping

1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
3 over-ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup melted butter
¾ cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup cinnamon chips

1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon


·        Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray an 8-1/2 inch by 4-1/2 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.  Dust it lightly with flour and set aside.
·        Whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together in a small bowl.  Set aside.
·         Mix the bananas, butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla together in a medium bowl.  Add the flour mixture and carefully stir.  Don’t over mix.  Add in the cinnamon chips and gently stir.
·        In a small dish, mix together the 1/3 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.
·        Add the batter to the loaf pan and smooth out with a spatula.  Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar topping generously over the batter.
·        Bake bread for 50-60 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.  Transfer to cooling rack.
·        Let bread cool for 10 minutes and then remove from pan.  Cool, slice and enjoy.
