Perfect Banana Bread!

i have never ever EVER liked the taste of bakes/cooked banana, like EVEEER until i tried a recipe i found online for banana muffins from cosette's kitchen  ( which is one of my favorite food bloggers and you MUST follow her )

those muffins made me realize the amazing taste baked banana have that is similar to caramel which is why i changed a bit in her recipe and started making this super delicious banana bread with dark chocolate chunks!
