Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

Updated on November 10, 2012

This Chocolate Banana Bread Tastes Like Heaven!

This is another one of my mother's recipes. I do not like bananas. I do not like the taste of bananas. This is one way my mother would get me to eat bananas....make banana bread. Now that I'm a mom too, I have tweaked this recipe to add another one of my favorite food groups.....CHOCOLATE! Yum yum!

      I love to make banana bread. I never thought about adding chocolate chips. I will have to give this one a try.
