I had no snack to give the kids today, so I had to figure out something quickly. VERY ripe bananas on my counter, and chocolate, alway a winning combination.
This recipe is so easy to make and very quick too. You can easily carry them for an outing or in a lunchbox. They are sugar free and gluten free, but the most important is that they are so tasty! You can even have them for breakfast if you’re in a rush!
Even the kids were surprised to see that that I didn’t add any sugar when they tasted the batter on the spoon! :-)
