Double chocolate chip banana bread

Here is part two of bananapocalypse. I didn't make this one gluten free, but I heard that it tastes pretty darn good. So here's double chocolate banana bread!

Adapted from Deelish Dish
2 cups flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
2 ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. I didn't have anything to sift with, so I just mixed them together really well with a whisk. But please sift it if you can, it really changes the texture of the bread.
With a mixer, beat the butter at medium speed until soft, then add the sugars and beat for another two minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each one. Put the mixer on low and add the bananas. Then add the dry mix in three parts, mixing well after each addition. With the mixer still on low, add the milk. When the batter is combined, fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour into a buttered loaf pan and put in a 350F oven.

Bake for 30 minutes, cover loosely with foil, then bake another 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. I had to bake mine for an extra thirty minutes because my oven is ridiculous. it also kind of exploded. Not literally, but the loaf was enormous!
Hope you all like it!
