My girls love making banana bread with me. We had a good stockpile of overripe bananas in our freezer, so last weekend we used some of those bananas and made a double batch!

The ingredient that I think really makes the bread is the chocolate. The recipe calls for a semi-sweet chocolate square shaved, but I’ll be honest, I don’t usually have squares on hand. I do however always have semi-sweet chocolate chips on hand.
So I simply load some in my salad shooter, and let it do all the shaving for me!
* I didn’t really use that many chocolate chips. I just had that many in so they would show in the picture. Since I made a double batch, I used about 2 squares worth.

I like to make the mini loaves. Fill the greased pans about this full.
Then when they come out of the oven, look how beautiful they are!
Allow the loaves to cool in the pan for a couple of minutes, then remove them from the plans and place on a cooling rack.Banana-Bread-on-cooling-rack
In my opinion, any kind of bread is best when warm, so I recommend digging in ASAP!Grandma's Banana Bread 1
But if you can exercise some self control (or you made a double batch..hehe), these make great “just because” gifts!Wrapped-up-banana-bread
