There is just something indescribable and classic about banana bread. It's dessert that can pass for breakfast and an awesome snack to have anytime of the day. I searched the Internet for the best banana bread recipe and landed on the following site www.foodess.com. The recipe is super easy to make, absolutely delicious and definitely one I'll be re-visiting.
Plus, I recently I made a trip to the Lindt chocolate factory and bought a large bag of professional baker's Piccoli semi sweet chocolate, so I felt the need to include some crushed chocolate couverture, in addition to walnuts and pecans. MmmMmmMmm, nutty-chocolate banana bread!
And since I purchased this massive bag of baker's chocolate, you know who is going to be experimenting and posting a ton of chocolate desserts in the near future right?! :) Exciting times are ahead.
