This is by far the best combination of banana and chocolate I have ever eaten! Most people who don't care for the typical banana bread with chocolate chips can't believe this is sooooooo good!

It makes two mini loaves so one can be eaten right away and the other can be put away for later!

You can make it in a 9x5 loaf and is fabulous!

These make great gifts and bake sale items!!
