I don’t know about you but my kids go through phases with their eating where they love something and can’t stop eating it then won’t eat it again for weeks. Bananas fall victim to this habit a lot so I often find my fruit bowl boasting brown softening bananas.

    Oh yum! I love banana bread (so do my boys!) but I’ve never tried it mixed with chocolate like this. It looks delicious and is a great way to use up some overripe bananas! 🙂
