Whenever I'm making Banana Bread, one of the kiddos will ALWAYS ask me if I'm going to make Chocolate Chip Banana Bread too? Kinda the same conversation we have whenever I make their favorite homemade Buttermilk Pancakes. So over the years it has just gotten to be standard operating procedure that I make one batch of plain and simple Banana Bread, and one batch of Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. It keeps the natives from getting restless! And because it's one of my personal favorites, who am I to argue with them?
Whenever I make these to gift to others or share at a cookie exchange or coffee party, everyone always wants the recipe. And now you've got it as well, so when I'm old and forgetful, at least I know that you'll bring me a loaf of wonderful homemade Chocolate Chip Banana Bread to enjoy with you!
The kids would go on strike if I only made this once a year - I think we are whipping up batches of fresh banana bread, in one form or another, at least every couple of weeks. These also freeze well if you want to make them in advance.
Hope that you enjoy our family favorite recipe as much as we do!
