It all started with a bunch of bananas sitting on the counter in jeopardy of ending up as compost. Johnny hit up my Pinterest Boards and came across this recipe for Banana Bread.

It was simple to make but when it was all done Johnny really wanted a chocolate bread. Sine we still had some cocoa powder out from some crinkle cookies he made we decided to put a spin on it.

She also added some chocolate chips to the top of one and it got us thinking. We decided to use mini chips and we also added some to the batter. In the end, we ended with this gorgeous, delicious Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.

Oh, and it makes two loaves so you can eat one now and throw the other in the freezer! Yum!

Hope you enjoy this bread as much as we have. It’s definitely one we plan on making again and again! I love that it’s a double batch so we can save one or gift one! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
