A chocolatey twist on the treat you may or may not bake just to get your house smelling like heaven (guilty as charged)….
I love my banana bread, and I love it even more when I can acceptably have it for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or for dessert. This is your classic favorite, chocolatified (Webster’s? Where are you? Oxford?) and healthified!
