Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

We go through lots and lots of bananas at our house. The girls want a “Banana Chocolate Smoothie” (which is banana, Nesquik, milk, and ice) and will snack on bananas as well. But sometimes they just stop eating them, leaving me with black bananas. And black bananas are PERFECT for this Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe!

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This recipe for chocolate chip banana bread is quick and easy to make. It's also kid-friendly so they can help you make it (in 10 minutes!), and versatile.

We love this Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe! It is so easy to make; it only takes about 10 minutes to prep. It’s also really kid friendly so they can help you make it. And we all know that kids love to help (and lick the bowl!). I also like that this Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is versatile. Add nuts or leave them out. Try it with chocolate chips or M&Ms or any other chocolate you may like…I bet peanut butter chips would be yummy too! I might have to try that next!
