My cutest grandma who I call “Granna” just had a birthday over the weekend and I wanted to make her something special.  I noticed I had some very ripe bananas that needed to be used up, so decided to make her this Chocolate Chip Pistachio Banana Bread.

It’s a very simple banana bread recipe, hope you enjoy!
