Banana Choc Loaf

Banana Choc Loaf

We are absolutely loving this Healthy Banana Choc loaf and I hope you will too.  Perfect for using up all those over ripe banana's in your fruit bowl.  Try omitting the cacao for a delicious banana bread, or pop the mixture into mini muffin tins for a fun twist on the loaf.  

Packed full of nutritional goodness whilst being nut-free, this scrummy loaf makes a perfect addition to the kids lunch box!

**  This Banana Choc Loaf freezes beautifully.  I slice mine before freezing which makes it simple to pull out slices and pop them straight in the lunch box.
