Two classic flavors come together to create this Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe that will leave you begging for more. Banana bread has long been a favorite sweet bread to prepare since it is both tasty and frugal, but the addition of chocolate and chocolate chips makes this one that even your pickiest eater will come back for time and again.
Over ripe bananas are something we have often had on hand in our house. Especially when there is a great sale on bananas that just makes them irresistible. We love adding bananas to breakfasts, desserts, smoothies and especially this chocolate chip banana bread recipe. In fact, when bananas begin to get a bit past their optimum for basic snacks, I add them directly to a bag in my freezer to use for future recipes. This means I always have 2-3 bananas ready to add to this bread when needed.
Even with the addition of chocolate and chocolate chips, this recipe contains far less sugar than most sweet breads or cakes. That makes me happy to serve to my entire family. While this chocolate chocolate chip banana bread recipe is great for making in loaves, you can also make it in muffin tins, or even in a donut pan for easy grab and go snacks, breakfasts or desserts. You can also make double batches, wrap and label for great bulk freezer options.
