This Banana Split Quick Bread is a fun spin on a classic banana bread recipe that I’ve been using for many years. It’s sweet and chocolatey, and the added cherries make it playful and fun, just like a banana split!
I got my love of baking from my mom. When I was young, she was always baking something – pies, cookies, cupcakes. And this delicious Banana Split Bread.
I’m not sure if this is the same recipe that she always used, but I’ve been using it for years. So long that I can’t remember where it’s from! But it’s easy to whip up and the perfect use for those super ripe bananas. Don’t have ripe bananas for your banana bread? Try this method to “ripen” your bananas in minutes!
What makes this banana bread special is the addition of not only semi-sweet chocolate chips, but maraschino cherries, too! My mom always made this particular bread with chopped walnuts, and it’s delicious with them, but we are a nut-free house so the bread pictured is as well. I’ll add them in to the recipe below so you can decide for yourself.
