You guys, if I could pick one food to eat for the rest of my life…this banana bread would be it! I’ve made a lot of banana bread recipes in my life, but this one’s at the top! It’s so fluffy, has the perfect balance of flavors, and it’s made from a list of good, whole ingredients.

This recipe is for a chocolate chip banana bread loaf, but you could easily adapt it by leaving out the chocolate chips and making it a plain banana loaf, or by switching in nuts or raisins. But, I prefer chocolate chips 🙂

This banana bread is perfect as dessert or a sweet afternoon snack. It’s delicious when it’s still warm, but also good at room temperature. I always like to make a loaf of banana bread on the weekend and then have it throughout the week as a sweet treat!
