Easy Banana Bread

I always have eyes bigger than my stomach when it comes to bananas for some reason.  We never seem to eat all of them before they get all brown and squishy.  I always loved my mom's banana bread but it was much more complicated than this recipe and it gets about the same result.

I found this recipe on Pinterest from Artsy-Fartsy Mama(where else) and use it all the time.  It's great for breakfast and even a little snack throughout the day!

Easy Banana Bread Recipe
2-4 very ripe bananas (I've used from 2-4 of them and it turns out great every time.)
1 package of yellow cake mix (I've also done it with chocolate...which was phenomenal)
1/2-1 cup of chocolate chips (Dark, white, milk...all good!)
2 eggs
Nuts optional

Preheat to 350 degrees. Smash bananas first. Mix ingredients together in a bowl and pour into greased loaf pans.  Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and done on inside. 

This recipe is soo good and so effortless. Plus it makes two loaves so that means you can give one away...or pop it in the freezer and bring it out a week later once your other loaf is gone!!
