chocolate chunk banana bread

Isn’t everything better with chocolate?  I think so.  This banana bread recipe is my go-to.  I don’t make any other kind, which is certainly limiting my experiences in terms of delicious banana breads.  But this one is so popular at my house, why go and change things?  I usually make this in the traditional loaf pan, but Kat had a great idea to make Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Muffins!  To a 5-year-old, this must seem like a single serving of heaven – no one telling you can have half a piece of banana bread.  Note the baking time in the recipe remains for a traditional loaf pan.  For the muffins, I eyeballed it, but about 2o minutes or so should do it.  Enjoy!
