Banana Chocolate Chip and Walnut Bread

I started baking when I was 9 years old. That was many, many years ago, and I am not saying how long ago. That is my secret. I love the way the house smells when there is something in the oven. The wafts of smells is heavenly.

Recently I made banana bread with walnuts. Today I decided I wanted some chocolate in my banana bread. It is probably because I made some banana chocolate chip muffins not long ago. Now that I think about it, I use my oven almost everyday. Does anyone else do this too?

Dry Ingredients:
