Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips and Chocolate Glaze

Hi everyone. A while back, my 10 year old got me to buy a subscription of Food Network magazine for her school fundraiser. I must say, there are some awesome recipes in there.

I decided to browse through today and was inspired to make their banana bread when I noticed my blackening bananas in my kitchen. This banana bread is from the May 2011 edition and we hope you like it. It is CRAZY moist.

  1. This is an AMAZING recipe. I didn't use the glaze and because I didn't have sour cream on hand I used yogurt with dill in it – leftovers from a visit to an Egyptian restaurant. It was wonderful. Another suggestion is to substitute applesauce for the oil.


  2. yes, even with the dill. I wasnt sure how it would taste but the sweetness overpowered the dill. My family vacuumed a double recipe in less than 12 hours. A keeper for sure!
