Double Chocolate Banana Bread


Double Chocolate Banana BreadWith the abundance of leftover Easter candy and goodies I ate this past week, homemade baked goods are far from my mind. Hopefully, when I am once again in the baking mood, I can whip up this delicious banana bread once again! I made this recipe a few weeks ago, and I was surprised to find out how much I enjoyed it. Double chocolate desserts and breakfast foods, whether it’s muffins, cookies, or bread, tend to be rich and instantly filling. This was the case here, but with a glass of milk and some fresh fruit on the side, it worked as a lovely breakfast treat. Before putting the pan in the oven, I sprinkled some more chocolate chips on top, because one, you can never have too much chocolate, and two, it added a nice finishing touch to the bread. Chocolate and bananas have never tasted so good :)
