Cindy's notes for this recipe:
I have been making and sharing this Sweet Bread recipe for many years now. It earned its name from the reactions to the first bite of a warm slice ... it's always the same ... "Oh my!! This is Heavenly!" Hence the name "Heavenly" Banana Chocolate Chip Nut Loaf. Enjoy!!

TIP: So you will always have bananas for this recipe at the ready, don't throw away those last (3) over ripe bananas we always seem to have. Instead, peel them, put them in a sandwich baggie, seal the baggie and mash the bananas while in the bag and then freeze!
