I love banana bread. I like to experiment with a bunch of different types of banana bread recipes. This Chocolate Chip Banana Bread combines the flavors of banana and chocolate which complement each other really well.
This banana bread loaf is so good you will probably want to make it over and over and over again. I know I do!
This version of the classic banana bread is really not any more difficult to make than other banana bread recipes so next time you are in the mood to make some banana bread, make sure you give this one a try. You won't regret it!!

🍌 How to pick the right Bananas
The best bananas for banana bread are when they are overripe, not yellow but black. Or they're at least streaked with black/brown. The darker the better.
If you can't find overripe bananas, you can speed up the process by putting the bananas in a paper bag along with an apple and loosely fold down the top. The bananas should ripen in just a day or two using this method.
