Chocolate pecan maple banana loaf

October 20, 2015

Bit of a mouthful in that name.. I know… but it makes a delicious combination 🙂 I love baking a fresh loaf in the fall, the house smells delicious and it makes a great breakfast or dessert.. This chocolate pecan maple loaf was a result of “what do I have in my cupboard” 😉 and the end product was scrumptious.. Makes 10 large slices at 5 smart points each.
