Double-Chocolate Banana Bread

*We had this for our FHE treat.  It was deliciously rich.  A good way to use ripe bananas.  If you love, love, love chocolate, you'll love this; but beware, it is very rich.

1 c sugar
2 eggs
1/3 c vegetable oil
1 t vanilla extract
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa
1 t baking soda
1 1/4 c mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
1 c semisweet chocolate chips

1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray bottom of 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2.  In large bowl, beat sugar, eggs and oil at medium speed until mixed.  Beat in vanilla.  In medium bowl, stir together flour, cocoa and baking soda; beat into sugar mixture at low speed just until combined (batter will be very thick).  Stir in bananas and chocolate chips.
3.  Spoon batter into pan.  Bake 60 to 70 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes.  Remove frompan; cool completely on wire rack.
