This is my personal twist on a recipe I found by Fiona Haynes on About.com. I make it with whole wheat, white flour, more bananas and chocolate chips. To die for!

Delicious! I loved that this recipe has less sugar and butter than most of the other recipes. I used half white flour, half whole wheat flour. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly and it turned out great. This is definitely a banana bread I will make again and again. Next time I think I may try it without the chocolate chips - the banana flavor is yummy all by itself - and without the chocolate I wouldn't feel bad when my daughter is begging for more! Thanks for the recipe!
