Best Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Apparently, banana bread has been on top 10 most-googled recipes
during this crazy quarantine time! It seems like everyone is making banana bread. Banana bread has always been a staple dessert for me to bake. It’s easy and uses those spotted bananas taking up your counter space. When I heard how popular banana bread recipes were becoming, I had to share my recipe!

So ok, I know everyone thinks their banana bread is the “best” which is so silly….because everyone knows my recipe is actually the best lol 🙂 The chocolate chips just take it over the top and make it that much better.

I like to use 3 separate bowls when making this. TRUST ME, everything will just mix and combine all the better doing it this way.

Y’all this is so easy to make and sooooo good. It also helps that banana bread is the epitome of comfort food.

Stay safe everyone and hope y’all enjoy!
