I have so many different banana bread recipes on my blog. Some of my favorites are Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread. As you can tell, my family and I love banana bread simply because it is versatile and can be eaten for breakfast or as a snack. It also helps that I usually buy too many bananas and end up with over-ripe bananas, perfect for banana bread! I have not shared a banana bread recipe in a while so I thought that this chocolate banana bread would be a perfect recipe to share today. This banana bread turned out great. My family and I finished the whole loaf in less than 3 days. We love the chocolatey taste that is not too sweet. It’s enough to satisfy those chocolate cravings. I will definitely be making this again! Enjoy!
