I know! We were at friends one evening and she served this best ever banana bread. I had never had another banana bread quite so good. Not all banana bread is the same. This one, for me, was a real keeper. And now I’ve been making it for probably 40 years. Everyone loves my banana bread. I have since veganized it and it is still the best ever banana bread.

The original recipe did not call for chocolate chips. I have added them to this recipe. If you decide you want them, cut back on the sugar as it is a bit sweet with both the chocolate chips and the called for sugar.
