Judy's Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe
I received this recipe from my co-worker and dear friend, Judy, 32 years ago. When she gave it to me she said, “You will never need another banana bread recipe.” She was almost right. I added lots of chocolate chips for the chocolate lovers in my family. — Debra Keiser, St. Cloud, Minnesota
