Double chocolate banana bread

I made this double chocolate banana bread so many times I could say it has become a family recipe! The fudgy and melting texture of every slice is perfect for your breakfast or afternoon tea. This banana bread is easy and fast to prepare and remains soft for a week, but usually it’s gone in two or three days. Even better, it’s plant based and made only with natural flours.
