chocolate chip banana-yee BREAD


This is Mr. B's favorite homemade bread.  He calls it “banana-yee” because we use a lot of bananas on this recipe compared to others.  The more bananas we put, the sweeter it tastes without adding extra sugar into it.  On the other hand, I am a sucker for chocolate.  Every time we make this, I try my best not to dump another cup of chocolate into the mix.  So, we compromise.  More banana, less added sugar.  Bon Appétit!
