chocolate chips over the top.

Oh! This is a really delicious idea to use bananas! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
You’re welcome! It was so moist and the milk chocolate chips really made it delicious!
Diane you’re going to make me kick my new diet to the curb with this one. This looks so good that I can practically smell it baking. Let’s not even discuss imaging the taste.
Hahaha sorry about that! Do like I did. I cut them into bars and froze half of them so I can just take one out of the freezer at a time.
I have never tried chocolate chips in the banana bread am sure my kids would love this!
Oh yes it is very good. I like the milk chocolate chips better than semi-chocolate. I also like the mini chips. You may have to make two..lol
oh good to know and will keep that in mind!
A nice alternative to banana bread! I bet it would be good with a peanut butter frosting 🙂
OHHH you are right!
I think I will take the rest of my day OFF just to go home and bake. I’m hungry!
Sounds like the perfect day!
Sounds delicious! Can’t wait to try them.
Thank you Irene! I had to freeze half of them so I didn’t eat them all…lol
Ah! I’ll have to remember that next time. I would have just eaten them all. 😉

Chocolate chips sound like a great addition to a banana cake. I think the bars would be hard for me to resist!
I think using milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet made them even better! Thanks Linda!
