Banana bread is a favorite snack anytime of the day and especially goes well with coffee or tea .I had posted a recipe of the regular banana bread with nuts long ago for which I got great reviews and have always followed that no-fail recipe . Recently I tried a variation of the bread with chocolate chips in it ,along with some variation in the ingredients and the result was a delicious chocolate banana bread that turned out really great. This moist and tasty bread is absolutely a chocolate lover's delight.I used granulated sugar for this recipe , but using brown sugar will make the bread even more moist.I also used a combination of all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour .You could use only all-purpose flour as well for this recipe and it will turn out great. Please read on for the details .Happy baking!
