Just like with other breads, this is even better the next day. The banana flavor soaks in and it gets even more moist.

I am not trying to set a record for saying moist the most amount of times and people who are freaked out by that word – I’m sorry!

 In my opinion, the chocolate chips are not optional but you are welcome to leave them off if you want.
