Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Hey everyone! I just had to jump on the bandwagon and make up a banana bread recipe. Deliciously sweet with melty chocolate and warm cinnamon. So tasty sliced up with some butter on it.

I decorated the top of mine with some brown sugar and cinnamon bananas to add a bit of texture. I slice up my banana lengthways an placed on my mix. I sprinkled a little more brown sugar and cinnamon so they would caramelize in the oven. Walnuts or pecans would be another amazing addition to your mix but I just used what I had at home. You need to use very ripe bananas for this recipe, this is crucial. It adds a stronger and sweeter banana flavour to your loaf. I had super ripe bananas on my kitchen table so this was my excuse to make it.
