If you like gingerbread and chocolate together like I do you will really want to sink your sweet tooth into this delicious banana bread with a gingerbread and chocolate.
I bought some extra bananas just so I could make this.
If I didn’t plan it out that way I was afraid the bananas would be all disappear.
Does that happen in your house?
Just when I think I’ll have enough bananas to make something I turn around and they are all gone.
I didn’t want that to happen with here,
I couldn’t wait for my kitchen to have that wonderful gingerbread aroma again.
I made Gingerbread Biscotti and Gingerbread Scones along with Gingerbread Snowman Cookies recently and well I just haven’t had my fill of all things GINGERBREAD yet.
Grab some bananas and join me in my latest bite of deliciousness….

We may not get snow here, but nothing beats the warm oven this time of year with something delicious just waiting to come out.
I’m sure in no time I’ll share some salad posts seeing as January is all…Get Healthy, Start the New Year on the right track, but I think I’m just a few days away from coming up with an all new to me salad…but I have a few ideas, now to just finish off the rest of this yumminess first then I’ll get started on them.
Sink me teeth into these? I want to shove my face into them!

Ick. Three great tastes that taste great…separately. Can we stop mashing so many flavors together? Banana bread is fantastic. Gingerbread is divine. Chocolate chips are perfect in simple additions. Why shove them all into one dish? Are we so short on time that we have to mash all our flavors together now? How about carrot/potato mash with the ground beef and pickle from a burger mushed right in along?
Why don’t you give your opinion on it, after eating it. It was delicious and you comment and rant aren’t warranted. Show some manners, if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything!

Oh this combination sounds scrumptious! Thanks Diane!
Sounds like such comfort food Diane – love the idea of gingerbread spiced banana bread!
What a great twist on banana bread. I have a pile of brown ones calling my name.
