Best Banana Bread Recipe
This recipe knocked off chocolate chip banana bread in its number one spot as the best. It’s more decadent due to the double chocolates used which is dark chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Unlike chocolate chip banana bread, chocolate is infused with the bread, making it more pronounced and enjoyable to eat.
It is ultra moist and so tender that it feels like it melts in your mouth. The best part is you can still taste the sweet banana flavor that the bread is known for. This chocolate banana bread recipe will not disappoint, that’s for sure!
