  1. Didn't want the chocolate chips to overpower the banana flavor, so I only used 1/2 cup. Reminded me of Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey ice cream! Easy to make and baked up beautifully. Loved it.
  2. Love it! Love it! Love it! I have been eating my grandmothers banana bread for at least 25 years and thought hers was the best. My boyfriend disagreed because he said it was too sugary and greasy. So being one who loves to try new things I came here to search for a new recipe. Well I have to say I've found my new recipe and will not look any further! Well done!!
  3. My DH gave this more the 5 *'s I did add some cherries. What tops a banana split? He was lookig at it like it was a fruit cake then tasted it. Boy the smile that came across his face!!! A keeper. Will be definately making again. Thanks for the post!
  4. Wow!! This is just too decadent to be banana bread! Extremely moist and very flavorful. Wonderful for breakfast, snack or even dessert. This goes in the 10-star file! Thanks for sharing!
  5. This is more like chocolate chip bread. The Taste of Home recipe I have also calls for pineapple and cherries. Both are good, but this is a misnomer.


  1. I made this bread today it it SO yummy! I did make some substitions like I used whole wheat flour instead of white, used canola oil instead of butter and used 1/2 c. sugar and 1/2 c. splenda. Every thing else stayed the same. Before it was completely cool I ate three slices. SO GOOD!
