Banana Choc Chip Loaf

Do you have some bananas that are a little over ripe? Then this banana choc chip loaf is a great recipe to use them up!

If you have little helpers in the kitchen, a great task to get their help with is peeling and mashing the bananas. They may also like to help measure and pour the ingredients into the mixing bowl, which is a lot of fun but also a good way to introduce your child to early maths concepts as well!

You can choose to bake your banana choc chip loaf in a large pan or spoon the mix into muffin tins to make individual serves that cook in half the time.
