Chocolate with chocolate chips with just a touch of cinnamon, make this double chocolate banana bread amazing.  The sour cream makes it nice and moist.  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 them 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 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!
