    Mix all of the wet ingredients in a bowl. Add the chocolate chips. Sift the flour and baking powder in a separate (large) bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Don't overmix or it will become tough. Cook in a 180 degree oven for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 mins. Test the bread with a skewer to see if it is cooked.
