Moist Chocolate Banana Bread is an everyday winner for dessert, as a tea time treat – perfect to use up your over ripe bananas and create a decadent chocolaty treat
I would always say yes for a slice of Banana Bread and this Chocolate Banana Bread is no exception ! The bread is soft, moist and there really is no need for butter or any kind of spread.
The chocolate almost oozes out from the bread as you slice it. Totally delicious and another very easy recipe. I used my favorite Banana Bread recipe, made some tweaks and doubt I will ever make the plain bread again.
