Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Bread
I attempted again this week to make bread. If you recall, I had a slight mishap in the kitchen when I went to make this chocolate bread. But, I’ve made this recipe before so I was pretty sure I’d be okay. Plus, I actually prepped my loaf pans before I made the batter. Something I rarely do. If ever. I’m lazy like that.
And, to my delight, the bread turned out perfect. Just perfect. I know many of you already have a banana bread recipe you love. Something tried and true, probably from grandma. I did too. Until I stumbled on this recipe. Now I’m in love. And, as most good bread recipes should be, it makes two loaves. I love to freeze the other loaf for a future breakfast. Usually we take that second loaf straight from the freezer and pack it in for camping. Which is exactly what I am doing this time too. I may even be eating this at camp while you are reading this post! Ha!
Oh, and it’s healthy. It’s got oats, whole wheat flour and bananas. So feel good about it. Plus, I heard chocolate is now good for you. Right?
