    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.

    I made two of these loaves yesterday to give as a thank you gift. When I got her review this afternoon she said 5 stars. It seems that her DH, who doesn't care much for banana bread (too gooey) ate 1/2 of one last night and gave it a thumbs up. She said that it is delicious and that she would not have thought of chocolate banana bread. I used Kits suggestion of adding another 1/2 tsp of baking powder for insurance. They turned out lovely on the outside and by all reports wonderful on the inside.
