Chocolate Chip & Pecan Banana Bread

I may be a little late with my banana bread recipe. During lockdown one everybody seemed to be making banana bread, and why not? For one it is a great way of using up bananas and two its delicious. There are very few foods I’m picky about eating, and bananas and avocados are two of them. I can’t stand eating a banana or avocado that has black spots, I do know they are perfectly fine, but I just can’t. So banana bread is just the way of using up those bananas. This particular recipe has a long time in the oven because I want it to get a deep coloured chewy crust. This is purposely cooked this way as it enhances the taste and texture.

CHOCOLATE CHIP & PECAN BANANA BREAD

This banana bread will keep for 3 days if stored in an air tight container or up to 1 week if stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator. To breathe fresh life in the banana bread pop it into the toaster and eat warm.

My Chocolate chip and pecan banana bread recipe is a delicious moist and soft crumbed banana bread with a crisp exterior, which trust me adds to it. This banana bread also contains an excessive amount of chocolate chips and pecans not that anyone is ever going to complain about that.
Should you be lucky enough to have any leftovers as well it is perfect toasted the next day and either drizzled with maple syrup or slathered with peanut butter and a little pinch of sea salt flakes.
