Lemon Olive Oil Banana Bread

This is the first item that has been cooked in our new oven! We are (almost) all moved in and everything is in chaos. I did manage to find enough supplies to make this fantastic bread though. I used Laura's beautiful bundt pan to make the bread. That's a good thing about moving-getting to consolidate all of our kitchen supplies and get more use out of them. The recipe is from 101 Cookbooks of course.

2 cups white whole wheat flour
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup olive oil
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cup (super) ripe bananas
1/4 cup plain whole milk yogurt
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 teaspoons limoncello
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix the first four dry ingredients together, then add the chocolate chips. In a separate bowl mix the eggs, olive oil, bananas, and yogurt together. Then add the zest, limoncello, and vanilla extract. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, a little bit at a time until no loose flour can be seen. Grease and flour a bundt pan and pour the batter in. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes until golden brown. There was a glaze recipe with the bread too, but it really didn't turn out for me. The bread is great on its own.
