Sourdough Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is a tangy sweet little loaf that we just completely adore!
Sourdough Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is moist and flavorful. . . you’ll be so happy that you made one. It’s ridiculously amazing!
If you don’t have a starter in your kitchen yet then check out this really great recipe for making your own Sourdough Starter from King Arthur Flour so go on and get to it. . . lets have tons of fun baking with our sourdough starters!
If you’re like me~ I used to only be familiar with sour dough bread loaves which are very good but have a strong, sharp flavor to them. My collection of sourdough recipes using sour dough start that I share with you are much more mild. The sourdough starter just adds a little bit of ‘tang’ to it and let me tell you it’s a tang you want to experience! Seriously.
It’s a whole new flavor accent that I completely adore!
Sourdough Chocolate Chip Banana Bread will wow all your friends and neighbors- they’ll all be asking what’s your secret?
What is that special ‘tang’ it has? You can just smile and say thank you and then let them in on our sour dough start secret! Or not.
Just kidding 🙂
Much Love and Peace~
