Banana bread is everyone’s favourite go-to snack, and this delicious recipe comes with a chocolate twist that’s hard to say no to.

For the best results, it’s always best to your overripe bananas for your banana bread. You want to peel to be dotted with brown marks and the banana itself to be soft and squishy. While there are plenty of versions out there with walnuts, this recipe uses chocolate chips instead to really take things to the next level. If you still prefer that nutty crunch, just add a handful of roughly chopped walnuts to the mixture.

Once it’s baked, serve warm with plenty of butter and a nice strong cuppa. Enjoy!
