How many version of banana bread can you make before you get tired of it? I still haven’t found the answer. Specially when it comes to my Paleo banana bread, once I finally achieved the right texture and flavor I was looking for, I have not stopped making it.
This version, “Chocolate Banana Bread” has quickly become my favorite! It is so chocolatey and little fudgy, it reminds me a lot of brownies, maybe that’s why this is my favorite. I need all the chocolate I can get and if it comes in gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free form… I am here for it.
