    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 tsp. salt
    2 medium bananas, mashed
    1/3 cup unsweetened crunchy peanut butter
    1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt

    Preheat oven to 350F. Coat standard loaf pan with cooking spray. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl.
    Whisk together mashed bananas, peanut butter, yogurt, egg and oil. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Scrape batter into prepared loaf pan.
