  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  • Spray a non-stick loaf tin approximately 25cm x 13cm with non-stick cooking spray, and line the bottom with baking parchment.

  • Mash the bananas, add the vinegar, sugar and vanilla extract and whisk using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or electric beaters.

  • Finally, gently fold in the chocolate chips, and then pour the batter into the lined loaf tin.

  • Bake for 45 minutes – it will be done when a skewer or toothpick inserted comes out with no crumbs attached.

  • Cool on a wire rack.
