My chocolate chip banana bread is so dense and moist on the inside, and the top bakes-up perfectly golden on top. Be sure to save a few of your mini chocolate chips to sprinkle all over the top of the bread, as this will give it a very pretty finish on top.

I’ve also found that sprinkling some granulated sugar on top with the chocolate chips gives the top a nice, extra-sweet flavor and texture.

Oh, and before I forget, if you love quick and scrumptious bread recipes don’t miss my blueberry zucchini bread and this amazing cream cheese filled pumpkin bread.
