Val's Banana Bread

I love banana bread, but am not wild about bananas themselves. Don't ask me why, I couldn't tell you. So usually if I buy bananas they wind up getting black and I make banana bread out of them. On a recent visit with my friend Val, she made some bread that was really tasty and I asked for her recipe. I took a shot with my iPhone to preserve the data until I got home.

For those that can't read Val's handwriting, here's the info:

1/4 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups baking mix (Bisquick or equivalent)
1 cup mashed ultra-ripe banana
1/3 cup mini-chocolate chips

Cream the butter and sugar together, then add the rest of ingredients and mix well. Bake at 350° in a greased loaf pan for 55 minutes.
