Chocolate Banana Bread – Plain and Simple

Posted on

Chocolate Banana Bread RecipeBananas represent a kind of edible security blanket for me.  Never a need to feel hungry if there is a bunch of canary yellow bananas sitting on my counter.  A quick and nutritious snack is always at hand.  And although bananas make a constant and predictable appearance in my market basket,  I fade in and out of my love affair with them.  I am fickle that way.  I will eat a banana religiously every morning for months, and then, just like that, I snub them for days.  It’s during those periods that the poor fellows sit forgotten, and ripen past a point of where I would even consider eating one.  For me, a banana has about a one day window of optimal appeal before those little brown freckles begin to dot their skin and send them over the hill.

  1. I’m the same way with bananas, as soon as they speckle, they are ready for baking.
    I’ve never tried making Chocolate Banana Bread and realize I’m missing a wonderful opportunity. Using up all the ripe bananas AND having chocolate! Must remedy this baking omission! (And keep my resident chocolate lover happy!)
