Directions

1.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2.Peel the banana and mash in a bowl, using a fork.
3.Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, spices and sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add buttermilk, egg, oil, vanilla extract and mashed banana. Fold the ingredients together until just incorporated. Gently stir in cranberries and chocolate.
