Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

I'm currently counting down the days until I go back to uni (not in a good way) which means going back to having no life!

Up until now I've been enjoying working two days a week, having coffee catch ups with friends, making cakes and getting things done around the house during the week.

Because all that will change in two weeks time I am now trying to fit in all the baking I can!

There are a few recipes on the blog that I would like to re-do photos for, some of the recipes need a bit of tweaking too!

This recipe used to be plain old boring banana bread but I decided to mix things up a little by adding chocolate chips and cinnamon sugar.

The result was amazing! Delicious bananary goodness with bits of melting chocolate chips all the way through, then crunchy cinnamon sugar to top it off.

Just two more weeks until I go back to the boring life, I wonder how many more recipes I can squeeze in!
