Chocolate Chunk Banana Nut Bread
This is such an amazing tasting chocolate chunk banana nut bread! So yummy, and especially delicious right out of the oven! We’ve been baking this banana nut bread for such a long time and I decided to change it up a bit by adding in the dark chocolate chunks! Yummm!
Who doesn’t love a good ol’ banana nut bread with some delicious chocolate chunks added? This recipe makes a 9 x 5 inch loaf, so double the batch for two large loafs, one for you and your family and one to share!! Sharing is always good… I take recipes into work to share with my co-workers once in a while. One of my co-workers asked me if I was the one that made the banana nut bread he was eating. I said, “yes” and he said it was so delicious, that he was on his “4th piece!” :)
If you are not into chocolate, just make this recipe omitting the chocolate. YOU WILL LOVE IT!!! This banana nut bread is super moist, and to die for!
If you are like us, we always, and I mean always, have bananas ripening on the counter. We don’t always use them and end up having to throw them out. But, whipping up a batch of chocolate chunk banana nut bread next time your bananas are ripe will have your kitchen smelling delicious and your taste buds drooling!
And…. throw some butter on a warm slice, you will be in heaven!
