Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is a must have recipe for ripe bananas. What I love most about this recipe is no mixer is required, just a good ole' wooden spoon will do the job! I love this recipe but I don't get to make it often because I cannot keep bananas long enough -- my little monkeys eat them too fast. When I do make this delicious banana bread it will be gone fast because my hubby and I can't stop eating it. It is a great snack or breakfast treat.
Did you know you can freeze bananas? That is a great tip for over ripe bananas or bananas that you find on managers special.
