I also increased baking powder by 1/2 tsp (good tip!), used 3 bananas, and added 1/2 cup rather than 1/3 cup of chocolate chips to the butter while melting, AND added 1/2 cup of chocolate chunks for an extra chocolatey loaf. FANTASTIC. I will be making this again for sure!

I followed the trend by increasing the baking powder. I also used 3 full bananas & the opt pecans. We loved it, Calee! It was just right for us & accompanied us on a 4-dy fishing trip last weekend. All the other couples were so jealous ea dy as our breakfast was a tortilla rollup, fruit + this yummy treat. I think it would be equally good as a dessert w/vanilla ice cream & will look forward to that next time. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

I really liked this recipe, but I thought the brown sugar did not make this banana loaf sweet enough. Instead it made it kind of bitter, despite the sweetness of the chocolate chips and bananas.
