My family loves Banana’s, however we all like them a different way. I preferably like mine when they are nice and yellow with no spots. The rest of the house, well the more spots the better! YUCK! its inevitable with timing and the ripening of bananas. Sometimes you don’t get to eat all of the bananas before they become overly ripe. If you know me, you know that I don’t like to waste food. Especially with feeding a family of 5 and the cost of food these days, you just can’t afford to waste food. After all there are people in the world that can’t afford the luxury of eating 3 balanced meals plus snacks a day.

So when the bananas are too ripe I like to throw them in a Zip lock bag and put them in the freezer to preserve them until I am ready to use them. Sometimes I like to make banana fritters, Banana Pancakes, I’ll sometimes throw them in smoothies for the kids. This time I decided to make a Gooey Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. There are many ways of making Banana Bread, many ways that I have tweaked my recipe. This time I wanted to do something a little different and share it with my readers.

My goal for this recipe was to make my bread more on the moist, fluffy and gooey side; rather than the dense side like most loaf bread/cakes are. Normally I use all purposed flour however this time I used cake and pastry flour and I much prefer it this way. This recipe pairs perfectly with a side of ice cream for desert or a cup of tea or coffee for comfort. Check out my recipe below and before you go let me know in the comments what your go to recipe is for the family is.
