One of the first recipes I ever learned to make was a classic banana bread. To this day when I want to bring something to a sick friend, a mom with a new baby or someone I love, banana bread is always top of mind. On occasion I will add walnuts or chocolate chips to jazz it up a bit, but when I really want to take it to the next level I break up a batch of chocolate chip cookies for the ultimate surprise in every bite!

I usually keep a big batch of baked chocolate chip cookies labeled in zipper bags in the freezer, so I don’t have to make two full recipes from scratch for this Banana Chocolate Chip Bread. When I discovered Otis Spunkmeyer and their chocolate chunk cookie with No Funky Stuff I was intrigued. Usually when you buy store bought cookies you think of all the not so good for you ingredients inside, but their snack options are made without the junk. No artificial colors or flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial oils!

I gave a little twist to my favorite banana bread recipe my kids go bonkers for by adding white whole wheat flour for a little more nutrition. Pro tip: make sure to use ripe or spotty bananas as they make the Banana Chocolate Chip Cookie Bread super soft and moist, but just wait! When you take a bite you’re going to lose your mind. A bite of banana bread and a piece of their chocolate chunk cookies is pure heaven.

You could also go off road and try the Otis Spunkmeyer Oatmeal Raisin or Double Chocolate Chip Cookie (No Funky Stuff versions of course). You can find them at your local Walmart or grocery! Top it with a dollop of fresh whipped cream, coconut whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and watch out as you blow everyone’s mind!
