Bananananana bread

Oops. It just so happens a few bananas happened to get too ripe and the only way to save them was by making them into delicious banana bread. I found a no fail recipe for Banana Bread on a while back and have stuck by it with a few additions of my own. Every once and a while I'll add a few chocolate chips, and with this batch I also added some cocoa to the mix. Since I was trying something a little new I just split my normal bath into two, which explains the thin slices- but don't worry it was still an office hit!
