Cocoa Banana Bread

1 cup softened butter
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1/2 cup cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup sour cream
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla together in a large bowl.

Add eggs and mix well.

Stir in bananas and sour cream and mix well.

In smaller bowl, mix dry ingredients.  Add to butter and sugar and mix well. 

Fold in chocolate chips and pour into two greased loaf pans or paper lined muffin tins.

Bake at 350 degrees for one hour for loaf pans and 30 minutes for muffins or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

-We love muffins, so I made mine into muffins and they turned out really well.
-I didn't have any sour cream, so I substituted an equal amount of strawberry yogurt and it worked out great! So use whatever you have!
-This made like 30 muffins, so you may want to half the recipe if you don't want that many.
