Anyone with a toddler knows how fussy they can be about food. One day they love something, the next you can’t get them to touch it. So, when we bought a bunch of bananas because he went through this nanosecond phase of being willing to eat them, I had hoped it would be a trend for better eating.


It wasn’t.


So, I had to figure out something do with the extra bananas which were quickly going south in the kitchen.

Preheat the oven to 350. Combine ingredients in a large mixing bowl. (I wish I could say I was fancy and that there’s some magic order to this, but honestly, I’ve messed around with the order of things and it’s always come out yummy.

1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg beaten
Pinch of salt
2-3 bananas

Pour into a large greased bread tin and bake for about an hour (or until a toothpick comes clean out of the center of the loaf).

It’s super yummy the day of, but if you need to store it, I put it in a plastic bag in the fridge for a few days. (Or at least that’s as long as it lasted.) Be sure to heat the slice up in the microwave for a few seconds to make the chocolate all soft and melty again. Enjoy!
