    All of the given recipes sound great. I usually add about 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce or 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (plain) instead of the shortening to cut down the fat, but keep it moist. Basically make sure that the batter is not too thick.

    Google: Chocolate Banana bread
    There are two recipes, it is the one with sour cream.
    Love love love it, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, some strawberry sauce or Jam and make yourself a banana bread split. Yummy!

    I always use buttermilk in my banana bread. Any of the recipes that call for milk or sour milk will work great with buttermilk. It makes the bread so moist and good.

    This really is moist and I have been making it for 40 years. If you don't have Buttermilk, make sour milk instead.

    Called Best Ever Banana Bread


    1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1-1/2 cups sugar
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 eggs
    2 medium ripe bananas, mashed (1 cup)
    1/2 cup canola oil
    1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup chopped walnuts


    In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine the eggs, bananas, oil, buttermilk and vanilla; add to flour mixture, stirring just until combined. Fold in nuts.
    Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 325 for 1 hour 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf.

    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 cup nut meats, coarsely chopped (usually walnuts)

    Mix in a bowl 3 ripe bananas, well mashed, and 2 eggs, beaten until light.

    Sift together 2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon baking soda.

    Add to the first mixture.

    Add 1/2 cup nut meats, chopped. Stir well.

    Put in a buttered loaf pan 9 by 5 inches.

    Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees

    It comes from this website:
    I too use this basic recipe but I throw in 1/2 cup of chopped maraschino cherries, and 1/2 cup of mini chocolate morsels into the batter along with the nuts (sometimes walnuts, sometimes pecans, or both) and everyone I make it for just loves it! Warm out of the oven with cream cheese.......Yum!!
