When I was a kid, it used to delight me to watch the bananas ripen on the counter. Even though I wouldn’t touch them on their own (it’s a texture thing), I sure hoped my mom would make them into banana bread for us to snack on. She used to send me or one of my siblings over to our elderly neighbors’ house with an extra loaf.
Nowadays, I still do the same thing. I’ll eat a few bananas off the bunch, then I’ll wait until they’re covered in brown spots and make my own version. I like to throw in a handful of dark chocolate chips. There’s definitely nothing like a slice of warm Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, and it’s even better to share it with friends. Bake three loaves — one for yourself and two more for a friend or neighbor.
Sharing is caring right? Good, because I’m sharing the recipe for Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Bread over at My Cooking Spot today. It’s an awesome site that features great recipes and kitchen tips from lots of food bloggers. I’ll be contributing recipes there more frequently, so be sure to keep an eye on their Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram accounts. Happy baking! // susannah
