This Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe is 100% authentic Afghan. You know why? Because *looks at hands* these hands made them.

I’ve tried to change this recipe from time to time. Try to make it more “Afghan” but my family won’t have it. I try to add nuts, family won’t have it.

This recipe makes two loaf pans and I can guarantee this chocolate chip banana bread will be gone in 48 hours.

This bread is a recipe that is part of my Ramadan recipe series that is here on YouTube. When I make this banana bread I am making to fill up the family before a long day of fasting. 

If you like sweets, try our rose ice cream. Mmmm.
