Chocolate and Banana Bread Recipe – Moist and Delicious

Chocolate Banana BreadBanana bread has become a staple in this household. It’s filling, it’s delicious and for a baked good, it does have some nutritional qualities.

We also make it with whole wheat flour as there is no discernible difference in taste between using whole wheat or white flour.

And even if there was a difference, I’d still make the troops take their whole wheat flour and like it! 🙂

This recipe makes 9″ x 5″ loaves.
