Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

Stephanie Gallagher
Banana bread is one of my family's favorite afternoon snacks. And this is one of those banana bread recipes that is sure to become one of your favorites, because it is chock full of bananas, plus chocolate chips and walnuts.

Choose overripe, even black, bananas for this recipe. The ripeness is what gives this quick bread its sweet, almost cake-like flavor.
