I'm sorry that I have to say I just really didn't like it. I used less Choc. Chips since it seemed everyone mentioned it, but then I felt there weren't enough chips. It just didn't have the flavor I was looking for.

This bread is delicious. I halved the recipe and used 1/2 cup chocolate chips. The second time I made it I added about 1/4 cup coconut. What a wonderful change from plain banana bread. Thanks so much!

WAY too many chocolate chips (and I am a choco-o-holic) but other than that it was VERY tasty! So personally I would recommend only 1 cup of chocolate chips. I also baked mine in a large cake pan instead of two loaf pans. Baked for about 1 hour 10 minutes (until a knife came out clean)
