2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
4 bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups BCF Partially Sifted Flour
1 cup add ins (chocolate chips, nuts, coconut, caramel chunks, etc)

Beat together eggs, sugar and oil. Add in bananas, vanilla, cocoa, baking powder and salt and mix well. Add in flour and mix just until moist. Add in your extra goodies (I used half a cup of chocolate chunks and half a cup of coconut in the loaf pictured) and mix just until combined. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350°F for an hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. If you're worried that the outside is getting too dark before the middle is completely cooked, just turn off the oven and leave the door closed for 15 minutes.
