Recipe Comments & Reviews

I lost my favorite Banana bread recipe so I had to find a new one. I tried this one because it yielded 3 mini loaves. I gave these out as gifts and my friends loved them. thanks!
Made a double batch of these for gifts and kept one for myself. I used 1 cup of chocolate chips for 6 loaves and found that it was enough chocolate for me. I like that this recipe is not super sweet like some others, and the banana taste comes through well. The top ended up a bit crispy but that may have just been my oven. I will make these again.
My family and friends BEG me to make this banana bread on a regular basis! There are so many easy alterations you can make to change it up :)
I used this to make muffins and they turned out very good! I halved the recipe because I used three mini bananas instead of two medium ones. It made 8 muffins that way.
I added crushes pecans to mine as well, loved the chocolate chip, nut, and banana favors! Yum!
This bread was so easy to make, and my friends loved it! I will definitely make this again and again!
Delicious! Will definitely keep this recipe and make again.
I made this bread 5 times already... it was delicious, everyone loved it....very moist and sweet..
I enjoyed this very much. They had a nice banana flavor and the chocolate chips added a little something extra. They turned out light with the right amount of moisture. Easy recipe. I used 6 mega 3 x 2 muffin tins and baked them for 25 minutes. Will be baking these again.
