Moist Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

"My family loves really moist banana bread...and, of course, chocolate! So this bread is the perfect combo of both! This is a slightly modified version of the Banana Bread recipe in the Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook. We can rarely wait until it's cooled completely!"

  1. My boyfriend raved about this banana bread when I baked it for him. I made a few changes. I used 1/3 cup of white sugar and 1/3 cup of brown sugar. I substituted 1 tblsp of butter and 2 tblsp no sugar added applesauce for the 1/3 cup of butter (just to cut back on the fat a bit). I added just a dash of cinnamon and a 1/2 tsp on vanilla. I used mini chocolate chips. I also decided to add a nice streusel topping (I think that was the boyfriend's favorite part).
  2. Words can't explain how awesome this bread is!!! I did add some crushed walnuts to the top. My family LOVED,LOVED,LOVED it!
  3. This is absolutely one of the best recipes I have found. It is never dry and full of flavor. It's my go to recipe anytime I feel like making banana bread - which is often!
  4. Very good, kids and husband/I loved it. It got devoured quick. Thanks for the awesome recipe!!!! We serve it with whip cream on top.

<img src=""> <br>I am a mother of 3 children, Brent (17), Kaylee (15), and Cole (12). We have a very busy schedule most days so I love finding easy and quick recipes using fresh ingredients. I have been a Girl Scout leader for 10 years. I am a "Vacation Junkie" so I come home from every vacation and start planning the next one! If I don't have a vacation to look forward to then I fall into a deep depression! My new favorite cookbook is "The All New Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook". I'm only about halfway through it but everything looks absolutely YUMMY!!! My dream is to completely renovate my kitchen to be a Gourmet's know, granite countertops, big deep sink, top of the line appliances, etc.
