I almost always have frozen bananas in the freezer waiting to be made into a loaf but the last few weeks I don't know whether we've been buying excessive bananas or they are just ripening faster from the heat but my freezers been over run by my collection of over ripe bananas so I knew I was longer over due to get baking.

I was going to originally make Grannies Banana Luncheon Loaf but chocolate was calling my name, so I adapted her recipe to make this Double Chocolate Banana Bread and oh my gosh is it sooo good!

I made a few loaves to burn through through the bananas and to double check the recipe was solid. Since I had an extra loaf I sent it with Colt to work to share with everyone.

From what Colt said it was a hit. Not that I really had any doubts since we devoured a loaf ourselves and it is adapted from the best banana bread recipe I've ever tried.

Lord only know how much I miss that women but her memory lives on in my kitchen.

As one of the lucky people said... so much better then any other banana bread she had ever had! I did not use nuts... subbed in toffee pieces...the little surprise crunch was great...that little something... Thank you for a great recipe!
