banana and choc chip recipe

After a delicious recipe which is both kids’ lunch box friendly and adult friendly? Banana loaf studded with chocolate chips and lush caramel-like goodness? This recipe ticks the boxes.

It’s a big deal when I don’t smear something in butter, but let me tell you, this banana loaf texture is so spot on, it simply doesn’t need it. At least, not on the first slice. By the second you might just want to add butter for the hell of it, I understand.
