  1. Sounds delicious. I guess you could also toast it and have it with butter and jam for an extra special treat!

  2. This sounds good.

    Currently eating banana bread with chocolate chips in it. It is different, but I think I prefer it without the chocolate chips.

    I think my niece made it. She has a thing for chocolate chips.

    1. My mum used to make that and the All Bran loaf I mentioned. Your niece’s bread loaf also sounds good.

  3. Yummy, banana bread is always a good thing. I guess I should probably learn how to make it myself one of these days, since I like it so much.

    Thanks for sharing your recipe!
