Winters in Utah are CHILLY, so when I have time (AKA Saturdays), I like to warm up the house in the morning by baking up a yummy coffee cake. We had some over-ripe bananas, so I decided to whip up a batch of this sour cream banana coffee cake. I’m not always a fan of chocolate and banana together, but in this recipe it was perfect! I can’t tell you how much my family raved about this yummy coffee cake!

You sprinkle chocolate chips and nuts in the bottom of the Bundt pan, and it bakes into such a delicious topping.
This Banana Coffee cake is made extra special with the addition of chocolate chips and nuts. Your family will love it!

Doesn’t  just make you want to rip off a piece and shove it in your mouth? Seriously so good! Paired with scrambled eggs and a fruit smoothie, it is a perfect breakfast that keeps my boys full all morning for at least an hour. I am already stockpiling over-ripe bananas in the freezer so I can make this again. You really need to try it. And soon!
