Banana Bread is a favorite in our house. And not just regular banana bread, but chocolate chip banana bread. After all, chocolate makes everything taste so much better!
One of my favorite ingredients to put in banana bread is instant vanilla pudding. One day I went to make banana bread, but I didn’t having any vanilla pudding left. Just chocolate pudding. Hmmmm?!?! We like banana bread. We like chocolate. How about some chocolate banana bread?
