Chunky Monkey Banana Bread! An update to a classic banana bread by adding walnuts and chocolate.
This Chunky Monkey Banana Bread is an update to my Grandma’s Banana Bread recipe that I shared with y’all a while back. Because let’s face it, adding chocolate always makes things better.
Plus it’s kind of fun to call things Chunky Monkey. Which basically is the combination of banana, chocolate and walnuts. It’s a wonderful combination actually. And my kids go crazy for it. It could just be that they want the chocolate though.
This is my absolute favorite banana bread recipe. Again, I made some changes from the way Grandma made hers. I switched out the shortening for butter. Because shortening scares me and I would rather use butter. Plus butter is kind of slightly amazing. I also used a combination of light brown sugar and white sugar in place of all white sugar. It adds a bit more moisture and depth of flavor.
And of course, we want to use those lovely ultra ripe bananas. The browner the better! Bananas are a hot commodity in our household though with little Bubba man running around. I have found that markets tend to sell the over ripe bananas for baking really cheap though!
