Can we just take a moment to appreciate the person who came up with combining chocolate and banana in recipes! It has to be one of my favourite flavours.
Ok, aaaaaand on with the recipe!
These chocolate banana squares were really simple to make, as you can probably tell by my other recipes on here, I don’t like mess around. I tend to only make quick and easy recipes that won’t have you in the kitchen for a long period of time. Cause let’s be real no one has time to spend half their day in the kitchen just making one recipe. A lot of the ingredients are pretty common staples, so anyone who likes to bake should have them in their kitchen.
How did they come out? not too sweet, not too heavy or doughy, not too dry, subtle coconut and oat taste, nice chocolate and banana flavour, delicious when warm.
Perfect for….. a snack with a coffee, to grab as a quick breakfast in the morning if you are rushing out the door, or to kill a sweet craving.
