Chocolate, with chocolate chips and just a touch of cinnamon, make this double chocolate banana bread amazing. The sour cream makes it nice and moist. This bread is a fun change to regular banana bread or double chocolate bread. It is the best of both breads! I had some dark bananas and I knew that this was just the recipe to use up those bananas. If you have some darker bananas, this is a great way for you to use them up. I used to put those dark bananas in the freezer and save them, until one day I was looking in the freezer and one of those frozen bananas fell out and landed on my toe! So from that day on, I decided to either use those brown bananas up or throw them out! Otherwise they might come back to bite you, or smash your toe. This is a bread that you can make ahead and freeze. Make some today for Super-Bowl Sunday or just for any occasion when you want a delicious snack!
