We have all been baking up a storm during this quarantine. I want to claim the name of “Quarantine Baking Queen,” and honestly, I think I deserve it. Our house has been filled with goodies all month. Some I have given to friends and others I have given away. This recipe is one of the best goodies I have yet made.
I found this recipe from my boyfriend’s mom. She makes this banana bread often, her’s is fantastic, but it lacked chocolate. I am a chocolate fanatic, and honestly, banana bread is not complete without some quality dark chocolate. The recipe link following is the recipe she uses, and the recipes I altered to make my banana bread.
My Tips and Changes
- I make buttermilk at home by adding 1tbp spoon of vinegar to 1 cup of milk
- I use ½ cup of grind walnuts and 1 cup of whole walnuts. As well as ½ cup of ground pecans
- I added in 1ish cups (maybe more) of dark semisweet chocolate from trader joes.
I made one loaf with the chocolate and then the other with only nuts.
In my house, we can’t eat the whole two loaves of banana bread. I cut it into four different loaves and froze 3 of them. They can last in the freezer for about 2ish months. Enjoy!
