This chocolate chip banana bread is going to blow your mind. It is unbelievably good. Yes the chocolate chips are technically optional and you can leave them out if you’d like, but I will advise you that is a mistake.
I have actually given this recipe to a few of you and had others mentioned they’d like to have it as well, so I thought I would stop being stingy and share. This is a recipe my mom tweaked years and years and years ago from an old cook book. I’ve even made a gluten free version once by exchanging the flour for gluten free flour and it was just as good!

For this chocolate chip banana bread you can use a loaf pan or any baking dish you’d like. Obviously, with different sizes comes different oven times, so just watch it closely after about the 30-40 minute mark.
You may want to double your ingredients and make a couple loaves, this stuff goes fast!
