To put this mildly, I am obsessed with Starbucks banana chocolate chip bread. Ever since I had it and becoming aware that it is on their lower cal menu, I have loved it. Every time I make banana bread now, I refuse to put in nuts and put the chocolate chips in instead. Huge crowd pleaser in my household because neither my husband nor I are huge fans of nuts in our baked goods. Chocolate as a substitute for texture, sign me up!
When I saw this recipe on JavaCupcake, I knew this was my next endeavor. My guinea pigs as I kindly put it (my coworkers) were the first ones to try out this new recipe I found. It was a huge hit! I think I got everyone on board for the chocolate chips replacing nuts in banana bread, AND the espresso powder was a nice touch in the recipe to give it a little zip.
