Either way, this chocolate chip banana bread is just the ticket to make you everyone’s most favorite person in the world. You're welcome.

Bananas, with their naturally sweet taste, are effortlessly transformed into nutritious desserts everyone will enjoy.

They end moisture to granola bars, and they co-star with eggs in two-ingredient protein pancakes that come together like magic.

Nutrient-packed bananas also lend their moist texture and natural sweetness to baked goods. Enter this chocolate chip banana bread: a nutrient-dense breakfast or dessert you're sure to love.
