Banana Bread Tips and FAQs:
For the best flavor, use ripe bananas full of black spots. The more ripe banana will result in a lot of banana flavor and give plenty of sweetness to the bread.
Flavor of this bread is moist with melted chocolate inside. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips which tasted delicious in combination with the dark banana bread.
I highly recommend using good quality ones so they don’t melt on top quickly. Semi sweet and dark chips are fine.
