In taste, I love the bite of melted chocolate chips here-and-there with surprisingly delicious crunch of chia seeds! totally addictive!

So enjoy a delicious, comforting, heart-warming breakfast with your Valentine this year and don't forget to serve some homemade chocolaty yet healthy Banana Bread!

  1. Loved it! I replaced half of the flour with sifted whole wheat flour and replaced 2 Tbs of the butter with Greek yogurt. I also used a bit less than 1/2 cup sugar.. Will definitely make it again!

    Fran, thanks for trying banana bread. Also, happy to see a few healthier replacements you made. I will try these next time I bake this bread. You have wonderful day!
  2. Ummm I am trying this recipy right now and noticed you didn't have salt in the ingredients yet said to mix the baking soda and salt with the flour.. I was a little puzzled by this could you clarify? I sure hope this turns out as I am wondering if you meant baking powder instead with the salt...

    Hi Shawna, I apologies for answering late to your question. Yes, it needs 1/4 tsp salt which was missing in ingredient list. Even though salt enhances the flavor, I'm certain texture of bread will not be affected without it. I hope you liked the final bread. Have a great rest of the day.
  3. Mira, thanks! I'm sure you will love the taste and texture of this banana bread! also many thanks for the pin!
