Banana bread with crunchy bits of walnut and chocolate!
I am always in the mood to make banana bread. It’s similar to cake but much easier, made in just one bowl and the taste never disappoints.
After making chocolate chunk banana bread for years and my husband always insisting on adding walnuts, I finally gave in.
Turns out he was right, adding walnuts takes it to the next level!
You can choose to add any kind of nut of course. Other options are almonds, peanuts or hazelnuts!
I recommend using high-quality baking chocolate that comes in bar form. Use a serrated knife to chop into into small chunks.
Chocolate chips will work as well!
