Classic Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Walnuts

Classic Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Walnuts

This is Adrienne's tried and true favorite classic banana bread: "Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Walnuts. Moist, chocolaty and a great use for overripe bananas."

"I’ve made banana bread more times than I can count... and I’ve learned two things.  A) that I prefer mine with chocolate chips (because why the heck not.  Bananas and chocolate?  Yes, please).  And B) that I like a little texture added, such as walnuts."

Spoken like a true banana-bread connoisseur.
