Banana Bread

1/2 a cup butter (which my son ate most of before we were done, so probably optional)
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 ripe bananas
1 cup milk.
1/2 pkg chocolate chips (most would say optional, but I've always felt that banana bread without chocolate was a little depressing).

Preheat oven to 325 F.
In a large bowl, mix up the butter and sugars. 
Add the flour and the baking powder and mix.
Add the bananas and mash everything together with a pototo masher.
Add the milk for moistness and to ease in mashing.
Add the chocolate chips.
Grease a loaf pan that looks about the right size to fit the batter you just made.  Pour the batter in.
Put it in the oven for 1 hour, or until a knife stuck in the middle comes out clean (so, actually 1 hour and 10 minutes, 1 hour and 20 minutes, just cook it until it's done).
