Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This was the first banana bread I've made I think in 15 years.  You wouldn't know that judging by all the over-ripe bananas I keep in the freezer. 

I picked up the habit of stock piling bananas from my mom.  It has always been a joke how my mom used to throw any bananas in the fridge for this banana bread she was going to bake, but never did.  Like me my mom doesn't care much for baking so we would end up with quite the collection. 

Once I moved into my first  apartment with Meg I did the same thing; however, Meg's a baker so she put them to good use.  And that's why I called her with a few questions before I began.  Baking is so different from cooking and I find it's easy to have a flop. 

Here is the recipe I followed.  I added a generous 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips.


  1. i have the exact same affliction. ryan's always like "what are these for exactly" and then i have to say "baking" with a straight face.

  2. Hahahaaaa!! I think we want to pretend like we`re thrifty and never waste anything.
