Not one. Not two. Not three. FOUR bananas are packed into a single loaf of this delicious bread. That’s what gives it it’s beyond high moisture content. This Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread is rich and decadent.
Just like any treat should be if you ask me! The fact that it has some bananas thrown in for good measure is just an added benefit. And because of said bananas, that means this is totally an appropriate breakfast food! Don’t you like how my mind works?
I love adding bananas to baked goods. The flavor and moisture they add is just second to none! I mean, take a bite of my Banana Chocolate Chip Fluffernutter French Toast Casserole or Coconut Banana Bread Donuts and you’d be shaking your head in agreement in no time!
And yes, I know, I know. Everyone says their banana bread is the best, but I’m here to set the record straight. THIS is the best banana bread recipe. I actually order large amounts of bananas to sit and turn an ugly shade of brown in my fruit bowl just so I can make this Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread.
You’ll find yourself sitting in your kitchen, drumming your fingertips on the counter begging your bananas to ripen so that you can make a loaf. Yes, it really is that good. Promise!
This Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread has it all. A moist and comforting banana bread base is bedazzled with chopped walnuts and chocolate chips. What emerges from the oven is nothing short of amazing.
That melty chocolate gets me every time! I typically make two loafs at a time as the first is devoured so quickly. Or if you have more self-restraint that I do – kudos to you! – this bread also freezes beautifully.
