“A double chocolate banana bread that gets an approval from my chocoholic husband Bill.  He thinks chocolate is a necessary food group!

This is rich and moist with a strong chocolate and banana taste.  It needs no icing!   This will  make three mini loaves, just reduce the baking time.  Enjoy!”

  1. Fantastic recipe! I’m going to have to agree with your husband, chocolate should be its own food group! 🙂
