S’mores Banana Bread

 It is officially summer.  Summer has always been my favorite season.  When I was a kid it was because of my birthday and having off school.  Now I have to work during the summer and am jealous of my husband (a teacher) for having off.  I still love the weather and love spending time outside and going to the pool and to the beach. One of my favorite parts of summer is S’mores.  I always liked making S’mores over the fire and having a great time outside.
I decided to combine my favorite taste of summer, S’mores, with Banana Bread to create a S’mores Banana Bread.  This banana bread was so delicious and moist.  I loved the taste of the chocolate chips, marshmallows, and graham crackers with the traditional taste of the banana bread.   They tasted fantastic together.  This would be great for breakfast or for a snack during the summer or any time of the year.  I plan on making this again for breakfasts when we go to the beach.  I hope you enjoy this wonderful twist on banana bread!

    Recipe doesn’t say how much flour?

    • Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I’m sorry about that, I must have forgot to add that in. The recipe needs 1 1/2 cups flour and I have updated the recipe to reflect that.

  3. Ohhh what a great idea to add the s’mores flavors to banana bread!!!! Sounds absolutely delicious!!!!!

    I have made this bread twice already, and making it for a 3rd time today for my family coming into town. This bread comes out moist and delicious every time!! I am in love with this recipe and haven’t changed a thing to the recipe! (except maybe “accidentally” pouring in extra chocolate chips ;)).

    • I’m so glad that you have enjoyed it! I really like the banana bread recipe and the S’mores flavor in it tastes great. Extra chocolate chips are never a bad thing!

  17. I’m making this right now and if it tastes as GREAT as it smells….OMG!! Can’t wait till it comes out of the oven. Don’t think I can wait the 10-20 minutes of cool down time!
