Personal Notes:
This is THE banana bread recipe. I have been through a lot of them but this is the one that is good enough to give as a gift. It is slightly adapted from the allrecipes.com version by Esther Nelson. You can leave out the cocoa if you like, but I don't recommend that. It is a very light chocolate.

You may also add some quick oats to health it up a bit, if you like.
