  1. Made this for the family I nanny for and I’m having a hard time not eating it! Lol! Love this! Pinned it for remaking in the future and shared on Facebook!

  2. I made this recipe, but instead of a full loaf of bread, I evenly decided the batter into 6 large muffin tins. Talk about Amazing! I didn’t want to share!

  3. 5 stars
    This has become a staple in our household. I’m pretty sure the kids conspire to leave the last 3 bananas so I “have to” make this recipe. I’ve substituted different chips and added flavors over the last couple years, and it’s all been fabulous!
