Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Streusel
Alternate working title “I just wanna eat streusel and make stuff, mmmk?” I mean for real, if I could just have streusel for every meal, life would be just about perfect. And coffee I want that too. So when I was making my FAVORITE One Bowl Chocolate Chip Banana Bread the other day I was drinking coffee and thought “good grief all I NEED is streusel and this day is a perfect ten.” So I pulled out my no fail streusel recipe and got busy. Behold the recipe for Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Streusel was born. And it was so good I made a double batch in little loafs pans and took it to Palmer Food Swap. This quick bread recipe is a keeper, for me anyway, who always has frozen ‘ripe’ bananas in her freezer, you feel me on that one?

Streusel. I can’t even with streusel. When I make it I love it. When I don’t make it I wish I had made it. I think might make a giant batch of freezer streusel to put on top of all baked goods. But then I’d probably keep making coffee cakes and quick breads to put it on and I can imagine that would be a vicious cycle.
Palmer Food Swap
I did take these to Palmer Food Swap last weekend. They were happily received even if the crowd was small, the swapping was still good. If you/ve never been to a food swap I invite you to join us at the NEXT Palmer Food Swap on February 10th at 10 am. Join our Palmer Food Swap group on facebook and you’ll get all the reminders there plus you’ll find tons of good ideas for swapping and meet some wonderful people. All in one handy place.
If you’ve got them toss them int he freezer. It will keep you from getting fruit flies (UGH!) and you’ll be ready to make this EASY one bowl banana bred which kinda relies on ripe bananas that you’ve frozne. If your bananas are NOT forzen just use a potato masher to crush them up before adding them to the recipe.
