Banana Chocolate Chip Bread makes a great afterschool snack or lunchbox treat!

I have a love for chocolate–it's not just me, right? Adding chocolate chips to an otherwise healthy snack (filled with whole grains, fiber and fruit) is an easy way to convince your kids, or yourself, that it is a treat.
So is true with my Banana Chocolate Chip Bread. It's one of the recipes that my kids are enjoying doing on their own, now that they like to cook and bake.
This recipe started as a standard banana bread, but I modified the ingredients to include whole wheat, flaxseed for fiber, and a little chocolate (my fave!).
We don't put nuts in our banana bread because of my son's allergies, but some walnuts would add a great texture and go great with the bananas and chocolate.
Banana Chocolate Chip Bread
I am pretty sure that my son asks for bananas on our grocery list, then doesn't eat them on purpose so they'll over-ripen. Then they're perfect for baking up in this recipe.
Let's not kid ourselves. This isn't “bread.” It's just a giant cupcake. I'm not complaining, though!
Rather than make muffins, it is a lot easier to mix the batter up and just pour into a loaf pan.
