Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Crystallized Ginger

½ stick unsalted butter, room temp or melted
2/3 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons malted milk powder (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 6-oz container plain yoghurt (lowfat is fine)

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons white wheat flour (or substitute all-purpose)
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

2/3-3/4 cup chocolate chips (about half a 12-oz bag)
½ cup crystallized ginger, diced fine (about ½ cm chunks)

Preheat oven to 350.  In medium-large bowl, stir together butter, sugar, malted milk powder, and vanilla.  Add eggs and yoghurt.

In smaller bowl, stir or whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add crystallized ginger and stir around to break up clumps.  Add chocolate chips.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and pour into a greased loaf pan.  Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Makes one loaf.
