Choco Banana Bread

Chocolate Banana Bread

So my banana bread just got a chocolatey makeover thanks to my children!

Not surprisingly, post Easter we always seem to have a surplus of chocolate in the house, so here’s one way I’m planning on using it all up!

    We have been following Chintal for a while and love her passion for healthy family cooking. We’ve tried several banana bead recipes, and this is one of our family’s favourites for sure. Why? It contains nourishing ingredients and it’s easy to tweak to personal taste. We also freeze it and have it as breakfast on the go when super busy. Highly recommend this recipe to any busy family, and do get the kids involved too, as we do. We often bake and share this with our family and friends, and they all love it.
    Thank you Chintal.
    Love from Dadima’s family x
