Mom’s Banana Bread


We always seem to have bananas going bad in my house. So I usually end up throwing a few in the freezer to make banana bread later. This was a staple in our house growing up. My mom would make mini loaves for ALL of our teachers growing up.

Then I grew up and realized that most people don’t but chocolate chips in their banana bread. What?! Chocolate makes everything better. You’re welcome.
