This recipe is my family favorite, my 3 yr old daughter loves to stand at the counter and stir all the ingredients in the bowl and scoop the mix into the banana bread pan and say ” I just made  you a  Greatttt banana bread Momma” with a smile as she is eating the chocolate chips out of the bowl!

Hope you enjoy it!
