From the time I was a little girl, my Mom would bake her special Cherry Chocolate Chip Banana Bread for Christmas morning, filled with chocolate chips, and red and green maraschino cherries. To keep that memory alive, every Christmas I bake Cherry Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Bites – a family favorite that is perfect for both special days and everyday munching! With a super-moist texture, buttery banana flavor, an incredibly soft crumb, and stuffed with chocolate and cherry bits, this is one of our favorite things to munch on Christmas morning! This same recipe also makes perfect Cherry Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and Cherry Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Muffins.
