My husband goes crazy for banana bread! So I have to be really careful to not mess it up when trying a new twist on it or he would be so so disappointed!
I refuse putting lots of oil or butter in something that can get all his moistness and fluffy texture from the fruit it is made of anyway. So this Low Fat Banana Chocolate Chip Bread has absolutely no added fat! Bananas and coconut milk (or any other full fat milk) do the job just fine and the result is a super moist bread, that my husband loved 🙂 He didn’t even notice it was a healthier version!
He eats it with butter, so for him I do not put the glaze on, but I like to eat it as a cake, so for me there is a little more chocolate
