This is one of my go-to recipes when I have a few bananas lying around that have past their prime.
Every time I make this the house smells amazing… forget scented candles, nothing tops the aroma of freshly baked bread, and the fact that you are able to consume it is a bonus!
My youngest who doesn’t even like bananas can’t pass a slice of this up, probably because it’s loaded with chocolate chips and walnuts… yeah, how bad can that taste!
Trust me, you’re gonna love this one!
I would like to thank Heather R. from BlissTree.com for trying out my chocolate chip banana bread recipe. After reading Heather’s post, I ran to the kitchen to double check the size of the pan I used for this recipe and it turns out I made a mistake.
Errata: The pan used for the loaf was actualy a Danish loaf pan which mesures 12 x 4 x 2.5
Also, a big thanks to Cari Snell from dinnervibe.com for featuring this post as the lunchtime snack of the week!!
