Mrs Fields Inspired Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread |

I remember going to the mall as a teen.  Hanging out with friends and heading to the food court if any of us had money.  Mrs Fields cookies was a favorite.  My Dad actually bought me the Mrs Fields cookbook and I have made so many yummy things out of it.  The banana bread page actually has so many smudges on it some of it is hard to make out.  Good thing I have it memorized.  In my opinion a good banana bread has to have walnuts and chocolate chips.  I love to put the walnuts in whole so when you bite into your slice you can tell when you get a walnut.
