Last week it was Peanut Butter Banana Bread. This week, Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread. I still have some more frozen bananas in the freezer so you will be getting another dose of banana bread before the big move. This bread turned out great! My husband isn't a huge fan of banana bread but I was able to get him to try this version and he loved it. It tasted a lot like a cookie and was consumed in no time at all.
