Homemade Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is an easy fall bread recipe. The bread is moist and loaded with banana flavor and chocolate chips.
Just make sure you use very ripe bananas, which will enhance the banana flavor. You can then use a Food Processor to turn them into banana puree so you can easily mix it into the rest of the ingredients with a KitchenAid Stand Mixer until smooth.
It is very similar to Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread, which has been a HIT this Fall season.
