  2. This looks SO gorgeous. I was going to make banana breads as Christmas presents…I might just use this recipe!

  3. Yum…love the melting chocolate chips…mmmm

  4. Sometimes that’s true because banana bread is a little bit dry in our mouths, so it doesn’t matter because the flavor is incomparable.m10m

  5. Wow, I can’t wait to make this for the family!

  6. I made this banana bread today. I didn’t have any crushed pineapple, so I left it out. I was also out of milk chocolate chips. I had about a cup of Heath Brickle Chips. I added about half to the dough and the rest on top of the bread. WOW- whole new level of great! Thanks for the recipe!

  7. I made this recipe today as a muffin and put in the cream cheese filling from your pumpkin muffins. Really good, thanks again for such a great site!

  8. My family really liked this banana bread. Thanks for the recipe! http://www.mybiscuitsareburning.blogspot.com

  9. Do you think it would be possible to incorporate yogurt?

  10. I made this and it was AMAZING :)

  11. I made this with reg flour and it was so yummy but now I’m trying the recipie with wheat flour!! Hope it turns out :)

  12. Found your recipe on Pinterest, and love it! =)

  13. I am really excited to try this! However, when you say substitute a cup of bananas with pineapple and applesauce, you mean only do 2 cups of bananas, and then 1/2 a cup of pineapples and 1/2 a cup of applesauce, or do 3 cups of bananas and THEN add the pineapple and applesauce?
