Choc’d up Banana Bread

chocolate banana bread

Banana bread… is it bread, is it a cake? We are not really sure, but what is sure is that it tastes so divine and it definitely lights up your morning. Perfect to have when you’re in a rush before heading to work. Crio cacao beans add a touch of chocolate flavour and give you the boost you need in the morning. Baking makes them even more chocolatey!

Tip: This banana bread tastes even better fresh out of the toaster, topped with jam.
