Double Chocolate Banana Bread

The first thing I ever learned to bake was my great-grandmother’s banana bread recipe. As I’ve discovered more and more recipes I’ve found lots of different banana bread recipes. I love bananas in all forms and think that they are highly under-appreciated. Double Chocolate Banana Bread
This is an interesting take on banana bread that I just recently made.

I made a few variations to change it up a little. The original recipe makes 12 muffins, but I made it into a cake with a bundt pan. I baked it for about 50 minutes at 350 degrees. I added the granola because I had some that I wanted to use and I find that it adds an interesting extra crunch. I didn’t add the peanut butter drizzle because all I had was crunchy almond butter, which may not have spread as well. Also, I added a lot more chocolate chips than the original recipe because chocolate.
