My family didn't like this recipe as well as I thought it would. They thought it was too much like dessert. We have banana bread with soup and it didn't work for them. They said it had "too many things in it."

YUMMMM ~ This is now my favorite banana bread recipe. So moist and just so good. I didn't add quite as many choc chips after reading another review but messed up and doubled the cherries . . . I think it was even better, but then I like cherry. Adding coconut like another reviewer suggested will be my next addition. Thanks for this recipe.
I made the recipe exactly as written, but instead of regular chocolate chips I used the mini cc....and only 1 cup. Plenty of chips. MMMMM good! Beautiful presentation as well. Thanks for the awesome recipe.
I followed the recipe exactly. Way too many chocolate chips. There is a lot of prep involved for a very underwhelming result. Did not put this in my "keeps" file.
