Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread | Banana Chocolate Bread Recipe

This easy recipe for Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread does double-duty for breakfast, brunch or dessert.

Homemade bread is always a treat. My daughters are always asking me to make banana bread. Both think this is the best banana bread because it's double chocolate, made with cocoa chocolate and chocolate chips. My charming son-in-law likes plain banana bread. Sweet bread is really pure comfort food and goes well with a glass of milk or your morning coffee.

I like to double the recipe and freeze several. Mini loaf pans are the perfect size if you're bringing a hostess gift.
Chocolate Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

We prefer the mini semi sweet chocolate morsels in this dessert bread.  The addition of cocoa powder gives this chocolate banana bread a nice, rich chocolate flavor.  You can add nuts if your family likes them.

If chocolate's not your thing, I have a terrific recipe for a quick, plain, simple banana bread.

This banana bread can be sliced and then freeze and seal using my Food Saver Vacuum Sealing machine for quick breakfast or impromptu snack.  They're easy to defrost in the microwave in a pinch.

Another family breakfast bread favorite is this easy Monkey Bread made with Maple Syrup!
