Whole Wheat Banana Bread

February 26, 2016

whole wheat banana bread

Last week I finished up work early and the crisp weather (I’m trying to be positive) had me craving some warm homemade bread. Well, that and the fact that I haven’t really had carbs in over a month. I was too tired to stop at the grocery but luckily had some ripe bananas hanging around.

I pulled together what I had at home and with a little help from my pinterest decided to add dark chocolate chips & I think the result was pretty amazing. One tip is to make sure you mash the bananas very well. Mine weren’t as ripe as I would have liked so it took quite the pounding to get them to mush. If you leave big chunks it’s okay but when you check the bread with a toothpick to see if it’s done you may think it’s not when in reality it is and you are just directly sticking your toothpick into a piece of banana (this did not happen to me I don’t know what would make you think that…)
