Banana Cinnamon Chip Coffee Cake

Forget regular old banana bread!  This banana cake is amazing, thanks to the wonderful layers of sugary, nutty streusel.  My family will gladly eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.  Which is fine, because it has fruit in it, right? 

If you can’t find cinnamon chips (there usually a seasonal fall thing around here), then I’m sure chocolate or even butterscotch chips would be an equally tasty substitution.  I usually double the recipe, or it doesn’t last more than a day around here.  This is hands down my favorite way to use up over-ripe bananas.
