  1. Heat the oven to 350 ° F. Spray an 8½ by 4½ inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Line with parchment paper, leaving overhangs on both long sides.
  2. Spread the nuts on a baking sheet and cook until fragrant, about 10 minutes. Let cool, then roughly chop.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the bananas, sugar, oil and vanilla. In a second bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, then stir into banana mixture until just combined (batter will be thick). Stir in the chocolate and nuts.
  4. Transfer the dough to the prepared pan, smooth the top and sprinkle with additional chocolate pieces, if desired. Bake in preheated oven until toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 55-60 min. Let cool for 20 min. in pan, then use overhangs to transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
