Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

The recipe for this fabulous chocolate chip banana bread was given to me by a neighbor years ago when we lived in Air Force base housing in Okinawa, Japan. It’s one of my very favorite things to make when I have rotten bananas to use up and it’s always a hit! It amazes me that the nastiest of bananas can make such a wonderful treat!
