Homemade Chocolate Banana Bread

I made a loaf of this Chocolate Banana Bread this afternoon, and I can guarantee it wont make it through the night!

1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
2 mashed bananas (the riper, the better!)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)

Mix the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. In a second bowl, mix the butter and sugar until fluffy, then mix in the eggs one at a time before adding to the large bowl.
Once you have mixed the sugar and egg mixture into the flour mixture, use the second bowl to mix the sour cream and bananas before also adding to the rest of the ingredients in the large bowl. If you are adding chocolate chips (I didn't because we didn't have any) add them now.
Pour your mixture into a well greased loaf pan and bake for an hour (give or take depending on your oven) at 350 degrees.
