Caramel chocolate chip banana bread

September 22, 2016

Happy first day of fall y’all … Ha! I just really wanted to say that ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love fall, everything about it, crisp cool mornings and evenings, beautiful colors on the trees, warm cozy sweaters, a hot cuppa tea with a warm fresh baked loaf… yup all things fall are a-ok in my books and I would take 365 days of fall a year if I could! My daughter requested a yummy loaf that she could take to school for lunch, and in her words she did’nt want it too “diety” Ha! She loves banana loaf so I took it up a notch and sweetened it up with caramel sauce and chocolate chips.. The end result was a delicious decadent loaf and she loved it. Just 4 smart points per piece and what better way to celebrate fall with a warm fresh slice of this yummy loaf!

    I just found your site and yesterday I made this recipe but subbed pumpkin for the banana (because my bananas were not ripe enough to use and I had pumpkin on hand), SOO GOOD! Thank you so much for these delicious and healthy recipes. I can’t wait to try more of them.

      Apple sauce maybe? It might change texture and taste slightly

    I’m not sure if you will see this since this post is older, but did you use sugar free caramel syrup or lite brown sugar or just regular?

    I think if you are serving the loaf to company, you might wait and drizzle the caramel just before serving. It would look really decadent then!

    So I am late making this recipe, but stumbled across it and whipped it up last night. It is incredible!! Even my son liked it (and he is picky). Will definitely be making this again. It is so hard for me to decide which loaf to make because all your recipes are excellent!!
