Chocolate Chip Banana Bread


Out of the blue, I just wanted to bake a quick bread for breakfast. Looking through my recipe file for something which my kids will eat, I found this Chocolate Chip Banana Bread which sounds delicious. I just happen to have some ripe bananas in my fridge and it must be lucky day.

  1. Oh, chocolate and bananas are good any way combined! This looks so good. I have a really easy recipe for this too. You don’t even need a mixer with it! Hmmmm, have bananas….have chips…..tummy growling…. haha.

  2. Looks great! My favourite is the kind they sell at Starbucks, Bean Around the World, etc… seems that it’s the same style almost everywhere. Moist and just sweet enought (bad for my health I’m sure!)

    Oh! And tying for first is the one my friend Caroline makes. It’s soo good!
