(Chocolate Chip) Banana Bread #1

Some might say the chocolate chips are optional. Some might substitute nuts. I say do whatever you feel like. Mini chips are good too. Victoria recently suggested using peanut butter chips. Hello...domestic diva in the making? Peanut butter chip banana bread? Yum! I'll be trying it soon.
Heres Brooklyn helping:
Serve for breakfast, toasted. Serve for dessert, diced up with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce & sliced bananas. Yeah you heard me!
