throwback thursday!! banana bread... but now with chocolate chips!!!


 for todays throwback thursday i am taking this recipe i posted here banana bread and making it better.. how did i make it better? well i added chocolate of course.. chocolate makes everything better {maybe not steak.. steak doesn't need chocolate}..

i have an affinity for these types of breads.. like grandmommy's zucchini bread or this pumpkin banana chocolate chip bread because when you stayed at grandmommy's house.. which was often, she would allow you to eat them pretty much whenever you wanted..so i grew up loving have a slice of zucchini bread with a little butter on it as an afternoon snack..  memories.. and yummy ones at that..
