Notes

As this banana bread is not super sweet, please feel free to add more sugar or sweetener to the recipe if you have a craving for very sweet dessert.
In my opinion this banana bread taste better when it's completely cooled because the chocolate chips harden so that you can enjoy the combination of crunchiness of them and the softness of the cake.
