Going Bananas: Banana Choco Chip Bread

Last Sunday at around 9:30pm, when most people are already asleep, I decided to give our over ripe bananas a new lease on life…

I don’t know why I never thought of doing this before, opting instead to just let bananas after bananas go to waste.  Shame on me!

But that won’t happen again.  From the outcome of this late night baking project, I know for sure this won’t be the last time.  The finished product was so surprisingly moist that it almost felt like I went through a banana bread baking degree program.  Haha!  Anyway,  the original recipe used walnuts, which I conveniently substituted with chocolate chips…ever the chocolate lover that I am.

For sure, this won’t be my last banana project.  Besides, I have banana recipes waiting to come to life, one from Meeya and another one from Kris. ;)

You can check out the recipe I used here. :D  And beware if you use choco chips like I did.  It’s not exactly for weight watchers, nor is it for “sugar watchers”.  Hee hee! ;)

    That looks good! Why didn’t I think to add chocolate chips to banana bread? it sounds like a terrific combination!

    Marketman! What a pleasant surprise! I’m so honored. Really! I’ve always loved banana bread but I don’t recall ever having a banana choco chip combo ever so I thought, why not? I got my chocolate fix and saved the bananas from being thrown away. It’s a terrific combination all right! ;)

    Thanks so much for the visit! I’m starstruck! Hahaha! :razz:

    Thanks, Mee! I used the recipe I found at Joy of Baking. Pag nakabili ako ng wafers, I’ll use the recipe you gave me next. ;) Wala bang oven sa suite? ;) Hee hee!

    Ayayay! I love banana bread (as in i make batches and send small loaves to the moms and the aunties.) I’ll probably try this. Matagal tagal na ring di umiinit ang oven ko. :)
