1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


2. Grease a loaf pan measuring 9 x 5 inches, and 3 inches deep (approximately). Set aside.


3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter at high speed with both sugars until light and creamy (about 2 minutes). Add the vanilla, eggs, and salt. Beat for 1 more minute. Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula. Beat briefly.


4. While the butter mixture is beating, stir the baking powder and baking soda into the yogurt. Add to the butter mixture. Beat together.


5. Add bananas to the mixture, then the flour. Scrape the bowl. Stir in chocolate chips.


6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake on the center rack of the oven for 1 hour. Lower the heat to 325 degrees and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.


7. Place the pan on a wire rack for 20 minutes, then remove the bread from the pan. Serve warm. This bread keeps for 1 week in the refrigerator or up to 1 month in the freezer.
