I confess, I don’t really like chocolate in my banana bread. I prefer it straight up and traditional with lots of banana flavor and walnuts. This one, my kids love. What’s not to love if you’re a kid? Bread, banana and chocolate? I have been baking on a regular basis so that they can have a treat in their lunchboxes. Some of their favorites are blueberry zucchini muffins, pumpkin bread and banana bread.
Then they’ll say, “when are you going to put cookies in our lunch? Some kids get cookies in their lunch, ya know”….and I say well they’re probably the pre-packaged junky store-bought kind. I bake you homemade treats all the time. No response…. Sigh.
I always end up with 2 or 3 bananas at the end of the bunch that get nice and ripe and this bread is very easy to whip up….but this is probably the last time I will make it for a while because pumpkin bread is taking over! Woo hoo! That’s right, let the pumpkin recipes begin!
And I can assure you that you will not find me putting chocolate in my pumpkin bread…not gonna happen. Enjoy!
