Olympics + {CHOcolate Chip Banana Bread}

I don't know about you, but I just LOVE watching the Olympics.  Every night I find myself promising I'm going to go to bed early earlier, to no avail. I just have to keep watching! It's intriguing. It's inspiring. And I love seeing the smiles on the faces of the champions.  They have trained so hard for that moment, sacrificed so much, and just want to be the best...in the world.  You've probably seen the commercials, but Chobani is sponsoring this year's Olympics!  Talk about big time :)  The forward momentum they have is amazing: new products, opening a physical store in New York, and now the Olympics!  I feel I am on a similar journey, on a smaller scale. If you missed this week's big announcement, go back and read it.

Chobani's new 16oz size

Chobani just released a new 16 ounce size of yogurt containers, perfect for those who make Chobani a regular part of their lifestyle.  I must say, I am MOST excited about the Vanilla Chocolate Chunk (previously only sold in the "kids" size). And it was just BEGGING to be made into banana bread.

Before this "ingredients" photo was taken, my little munchkin snuck up, stole the bananas (and spatula) and tried to hide with them...ha!

This was no doubt my "best batch ever." Perfectly browned. Perfectly cooked. Perfectly sweet.

Introducing the BEST banana bread you'll ever eat/bake/enjoy/devour: CHOcolate Chip Banana Bread featuring Chobani's Vanilla Chocolate Chunk:

Now I just need it to get pinned over 106,000 times so that it catches up with my Strawberry & Blueberry banana breads on Pinterest!  Ready, set, PIN!

And for those of you always wondering about my red table, here it is in all its glory: nestled in front of my sliding glass door for good lighting :)
