Chocolate chip banana bread is a really nice chocolately twist on a classic banana bread recipe. Add chocolate chips in the mixture for a really nice little treat. Banana bread is the perfect way to use up all those leftover bananas in the fruit bowl that have started to go brown. We all have the best intentions when we buy our weekly grocery shop; the fruit bowl is piled high, but by the end of the week there are always a few bits left threatening to be thrown into the bin. With a little imagination and some store cupboard essentials you can try out this easy chocolate chip and banana bread recipe as a great way to use up over ripe bananas. Great to keep in the bread bin and serve it for breakfast or as an after school snack.

  • 50g soft butter

If you don’t like dark chocolate, try white or milk chips instead. Or if you want an extra bit of crunch, try adding some chopped nuts.
