Mini Chip Banana Loafs

Banana bread is a favorite among many people in the quick bread family. I have always love it as a child and still do especially with chocolate chips :P YUM! The best part about this banana bread is that its in mini loaf form so its great for snacking on the go and a good size portion. 

This bread is packed with mini semisweet chocolate chips just how I like it. I like the small morsels better then the large especially for bread and muffins. This is of course a less then healthier version of banana loafs from the last recipe I made, but I wanted a basic delicious bread.

Its packed with banana flavor and is moist while being slightly chewy.Its got simple ingredients and direction. Its basically a fool proof banana bread recipe and it be pretty hard to screw this one up :). It might not be as healthy, but its really good once in a while and technically every one's burning some calories while cooking and doing food preparing.You may not think it at the time and I certainly didn't that you are moving quite bit and improving hands on skills. Just try not to eat the batter or ingredients to much lol :P. But a few chocolate chips to nibble on won't hurt lol

Enjoy Baking Everyone!

  1. Baked goods are always so much more delightful in mini form. Such a cute idea. These are the perfect size for gift giving. How many mni loafs did you get out of the single recipe?
