Juicy banana bread with chocolate

Ripe bananas in their most delicious form

Banana bread is a classic in our family! Because bananas are among the foods we always have in the house. They come to the Bircher Muesli in the morning and I like to use them to sweeten smoothies and pastries. If a very fast energy boost is required by the boys, I’ll make a quick banana milk.

From time to time, however, some stay too long, and as soon as they have brown spots, nobody wants to eat them anymore! The classic case for a round of banana bread!
