Judy's Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

"This is the BEST Banana Bread I have ever tasted without adding the chocolate chips. We also use sweetened almond milk (60 cal) instead of buttermilk."
