Banana Chocolate Chips Loaf

This deliciously moist banana loaf bread/cake/quick bread is loaded with good stuff – bananas, grape seed oil, muscovado sugar, plain yogurt plus loads of mini chocolate chips for happiness :) You can make it even more healthy by replacing half of the all-purpose flour with wholewheat pastry flour, if you like.

Give it a try!  It’s easy!:)
