Double chocolate banana bread

January 2, 2018

Happy New Year friends! I can’t wait to see all the recipes I create this year, I try to mix things up as often as I can to bring you new baked good recipes as well as family meals. Baking is my favorite thing to do so for my first recipe of 2018 I went with a decadent fresh baked loaf because there is just nothing quite like it, I love the smell of the house while it’s baking and enjoy a fresh slice with a cup of tea.  I had banana’s that needed to be used up, and I was craving chocolate (I mean let’s face it, when am I not craving chocolate!) so in the oven went this double chocolate banana bread and oh my was it delicious…like chocolate cake, yes ok.. banana flavored chocolate cake.. I think you will love this one and it’s just 4 smart points per serving.. Bake one up today!

    Just made this, and WOW! Absolutely delicious. I substituted the brown sugar with Splenda brown sugar blend and that brought it down to 3SP per slice. Love all of your recipes.
