Quick breads have always been one of my very favorite things to do in the kitchen because they’re typically an easy mix, pour, and bake recipe and involve ingredients I have on hand. This means I can get to baking whenever the desire strikes, or in the case of this recipe, whenever the bananas get a little too ripe.

This bread bakes into a beautiful, golden brown loaf of banana bread that is spiked with chocolate chips. Sour cream (mala) does it’s magic and adds wonderful texture and flavor.
