Banana Bread is one of my favourite things to bake. It’s quick and easy to throw together, and a great way to use bananas you forgot about or didn’t get a chance to use. The riper your bananas, the more flavour they will give your bread. I am not a big fan of nuts in banana bread so I love to use dark chocolate chips. If you like nuts, you can substitute them instead of chocolate chips, or use both!

You can also use fun pan shapes like mini-pumpkins, mini-coffins, houses etc.  to suit any type of theme or holiday!
