Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Banana bread is a classic recipe that I just realized I had never made a post about. It’s one of my favorite breads, and has such amazing flavors. Of course, if you add chocolate chips it gets even better! The great thing about this bread is that you can (or should) use leftover bananas that have gotten too ripe to eat. Their skins can be black and the insides bruised, but they will still make great banana bread. The bread had a nice brown crust on the outside and a soft, gooey texture on the inside. I added a teaspoon of spices which gave it an even stronger aroma and flavor.
