Banana Chocolate Chunk Bread

Who doesn’t love bananas and chocolate together? Very few people I would think? If you’re one of those few people this blog entry is not for you then 🙂 But I would still urge you to set your banana chocolate issues aside and give it a try. Sweet breads are wonderful comfort food to have. I tried this recipe 4 years ago and have always had people say wonderful things about it. I have fond memories of when my husband and I were newly married and living in a little studio in Dubai. My sister and her family were visiting Dubai and I made this as a snack and it was placed on the kitchen counter right by the entrance to the house, anyone walking in or out would be taking off big chunks of the bread and chowing it down. It was just comforting!
