If you have been inside of a Costco lately, you know that the store is stocked with amazing products to help you stock up. In fact, if you have a family, you know that buying essentials in stock can save you over the long run on time and money. On March 18, 2016, the suburb outside of Houston, Humble, TX, will get a new Costco!! With the grand opening comes a special deal that you can get on membership fees! Check it out and the Chocolate Chip Banana Bread I made with bulk products from Costco!

Some essentials I always like to have on hand are from Costco’s Kirkland Signature collection. I almost always have their Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the cabinet. I can use it for everything from pasta to steaks and even to baking. One container lasts me a good while and the flavor ties into any dish perfectly.

Flour may seem all the same but it is not. I have recently gotten into more gluten free products like Namaste Organic Perfect Flour Blend that can only be found at Costco. Use it for baking, pancakes, muffins and more!

No household with kids can survive without semi-chocolate chips. I use these to toss into waffles, muffins, fruit cups and more to encourage my kids to eat. The huge bag of Kirkland Signature Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips last for a while and are resealable! I keep them in the fridge for easy reach!

Using some of these products, I made a delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Bread that I gobbled up quickly!  I just grabbed a recipe online, like this on on AllRecipes.com and whipped it up. You will love it!
