Dark Chocolate Raspberry Banana Bread

I saw this recipe on pinterest a few months ago, and have been wanting to try it. Today I did! It was so deliciously chocolatey and slightly tart from the raspberries. Perfect pair with the sweet ripe bananas. I adapted the recipe with a mix of my other favorite chocolate chip banana bread recipe. you can get them here and here. I of course used white whole wheat flour for my nutritional punch. Trust me you cant even tell the difference. We all enjoyed a big slice and watched Bride wars ( great movie)  while enjoying this day off. I also made another weelicious goodie mini mexican muffins and another pinterest find lazy day casserole (both delicious)and we and listened to daddy play the saxophone (hasn't played since high school so hes re learning =)) I'm giving myself a proud mommy pat on the back. I had a happy little time in the kitchen today and a happy day off with the family. Happy Monday =)
