        I add about 4 oz of bittersweet Godiva baking chocolate melted with 2 tbsp of unsalted butter instead of chocolate chips so I get a dark chocolate banana loaf. AMAZING!! Thanks Mrs. Clueless for the recipe! Perfect

    What is the best substitute for vegetable oil in this recipe? Butter or olive oil?
