I think I’m still in a chocolate frame of mind after all the deliciousness of Choctoberfest. I also think, OK I know, I’m addicted to chocolate (and coffee but who’s keeping track) and anything with chocolate in it has got to be good.

And what better to combine with chocolate than my never ending supply of bananas. Our trees are outperforming again this season with tons of bananas so it seemed a no-brainer to put bananas and chocolate together for today’s recipe.

Now, if you follow our blog, you know we have loads of banana recipes, like Healthy Banana Pancakes, Banana Strawberry Muffins, Banana Nut Granola and Jump Start Java Smoothie (have to get my coffee fix in too) among other things, so I thought I would bring a little chocolate magic into the mix.

This is a super easy recipe and full of the richness of chocolate and the moistness of bananas. It’s perfect for a breakfast treat, a mid-afternoon snack or even dessert. And if you place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a slice, it really puts it over the top!

I am still enjoying my Imperial Sugar and rich Divine Chocolates I received during Choctoberfest and, thanks to them, I can happily continue whipping up delectable and delicious goodies for the next few weeks.

Hope you enjoy!
