Banana and chocolate loaf



Sometimes only cake will do! There is nothing like an afternoon cuppa with a slice of something delicious. If you find yourself scrounging for that something sweet try this delicious chocolate loaf. It also makes a great dinner party dessert served warm with fresh cream and berries. The protein from the eggs and almond flour balance out the banana and gives you a low sugar load treat. You should get about 12 slices from the loaf.
