Bananas are probably the most consumed fruit in my household. Even my picky 5 year old eats banana without too much complaining. All the other fruits have to be converted into juices & smoothies for him. But the problem with bananas, that too buying in bulk, is the whole bunch ripens at the same time and all of them go from bright yellow to speckled and then over-ripe in matter of 2 days, especially in the hot weather. Which is why I’m always looking for recipes to use my excess bananas and I have posted quite a few different recipes from smoothies to breads to brownies with bananas.

When I saw Chef Mireille’s announcement for ‘Taste of the Tropics – Banana’, I knew this is the time to publish my banana recipes that have been in my drafts for quite some time now.

First up is a Banana-Chocolate two tone swirl bread. I made it for my Mother’s day brunch party, so this has been in the more for over 2 months now 🙂 This is a very moist and delicious bread that is perfect for breakfast or a quick pick me up snack.
