Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

20191105_095515

For as long as I can remember, I’ve associated baked goods with comfort. I had a friend in high school who’s mom always had baked goods fresh outta the oven when we got home from school and I always believed that’s what the perfect moms in fairy tales did. As I grew, I started baking myself and now, it’s the first place my mind goes when I want to artificially create some hygge in my life (and, I hope, my girls remember the smells of the baked goods they happily gobble down and it brings them comfort too as they grow). ⁣

One of my tried and true recipes is a hearty banana loaf. It took me forever to find the right one, but I believe I finally did it. Here’s the recipe xo (it makes 3 loaves)⁣
