The flavor cominations just didn't work for me, and it was dry despite the banana. I hate to not like an EatingWell recipe since they're one of my go-to sources, but this one just didn't deliver.
Banana-Nut-Chocolate Chip Quick Bread
From EatingWell: October/November 2005
This banana quick bread is full of chocolate chips and toasted heart-healthy walnuts so you get a taste of nuts and chocolate in each bite. This version reduces the fat substantially and uses nonfat buttermilk to make the results extremely moist and tender.

Sorry to say that this banana bread was dry and flavorless. I guess you can't cut too much moisture out for less calories. I threw it out.
Due to ingredients on hand, I made a gluten free version with 1 1/2 c GF flour, 1c almond flour, almond milk, and coconut oil. I only had one banana on hand so I whipped it in the food processor and it turned out great.
Haven't tried this recipe yet, but I love how right next to the recipe there is a picture/moving video of an illustrated banana going bad with the caption 5 foods to never eat. Well-timed, or just ironic.....
If your bananas are ripe enough, I don't think you'll have a problem with sweetness. They should have large brown spots on them and not stand up straight when you take the peel off.
My fiance and I both enjoyed this recipe (without the chocolate) and my sweet tooth is much bigger than his is. This has turned into my go-to recipe for over-ripe bananas.
