Banana Bread

ok so I’m bored. I’ve been on break for a while now and free time does not do me good. I’m normally constantly on the go with so many insane extracurriculars that I have little time for sleep, but now stranded at home with nothing to do I am dead bored. I can’t even properly cook! I’m back at home for the holidays, so the kitchen doesn’t belong to me, and it honestly isn’t worth the fight to cook in it. I did however get the chance to make this banana bread because the overripe banana’s were bugging my mother enough that I was allowed into her sacred kitchen. Anyway, here’s the recipe hope you enjoy. I love banana bread, and its thick gooeyness, I added chocolate chips as well, because face it who doesn’t love chocolate!
