Chocolate Banana Bread

September 11, 2009

This banana bread is moist, sweet and decadent, perfect for a quick breakfast paired with a skim latte or eat it as an after meal dessert with a scoop of light vanilla ice-cream. You can’t go wrong anyway you eat it. I love making a loaf on Sunday to have throughout the week. B likes to eat it for breakfast toasted with sliced bananas and a drizzle of light maple syrup on top. Looks extremely decadent, but this bread is 100% guilt-free. Wrap it up to-go for an afternoon power snack. It will keep your hunger at bay and keep energy levels up, while providing nutrients in every bite. Adding nuts would be great in this recipe for an extra boost of healthy fats to keep you satisfied. Warning: this banana bread is dangerous, I try very hard to keep myself from picking at it, but it is just that good!
