Grant's sister came over one Sunday and since we both like baking and I had been dying to make this, we decided to give this a shot.  It turned out to be so delicious, especially while it was still warm.  The chocolate chips tasted all melty delicious in your mouth.  

The original recipe called for cinnamon chips but I couldn't find them :( I'm a huge fan of the taste combo of bananas and chocolate though so it turned out just right.  I can't wait to try this again, but with cinnamon chips.  The recipe also called for 3/4 cup chopped pecans to put in the streusel, I also left that out.

Ingredients
1 cup chocolate chips 
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 mashed bananas
3 tablespoons buttermilk

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  
2. Spray an 8 or 9-inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.  
3. In a medium bowl, stir together chocolate chips, brown sugar, and cinnamon to make streusel; set aside.  
4. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. 
5. Using an electric mixer, beat sugar, butter, egg and vanilla until fluffy.  Beat in mashed bananas and buttermilk.  Add dry ingredients and mix well.  
6. Spread half of the batter into the prepared pan.  Sprinkle with half of the streusel.  Repeat with the remaining batter and streusel.  
7. Bake 45-50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
8. Serve and devour!
