Chocolate Chip Pecan Banana Bread

We're heading on vacation tomorrow and this recipe was me trying to use up items that were sure to go bad - well, actually just the bananas but I threw in the chocolate chips and pecans for good measure.

I also was running low on sugar so I decided to throw in a little brown sugar to substitute.  I really liked it actually, it's a different kind of sweetness.  So, if my family is reading...yes I am bringing these to the beach!! 

Yields 2 loaves

Chocolate Chip Pecan Banana Bread 

1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 cups of flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup buttermilk
6 bananas, mashed with a fork
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Using an electric mixer, combine the oil and sugar.  Sift together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and add to sugar mixture.  Add remaining ingredients: mix well.  Using a wooden spoon, stir in the chocolate chips and pecans.  Pour into 2 well greased loaf pans and bake for 50-55 minutes (start checking at 45 minutes) or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
