Chocolate Chip Cranberry Banana Bread

img_0707

I love bananas. I would say I don’t go many days without one. Good quick carbs, low fat, great tasting, and they go so well in baked goods. I know many people that throw bananas away once they turn brown, but not me. I freeze them so I have them for a rainy day(in this case, snowy day). Bananas in cooking can help replace fat source, and even a flour in some products(like pancakes). They also will help a natural sweetener to the product. This bread is a great mix between rich banana flavor, moist chewy bread, and wraps up with a fruity chocolate finish. Serve bread cold, or slice and toast to serve warm. Its fantastic paired with your favorite peanut butter and fresh cup of coffee.

So, grab those brown bananas and lets get baking!

Makes 12 servings.

Servings are optional depending on how you would like to cut it up, and depending on how you bake it. Want to make individual portions? Pop the batter into lined muffin tins for single serve banana bread muffins.
