Judy’s Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I received this chocolate chip banana recipe from my co-worker and dear friend, Judy, years ago. When she gave it to me she said, “You will never need another banana bread recipe.” She was almost right. I added more chocolate chips for the chocolate lovers in my family. — Debra Keiser, St. Cloud, Minnesota
