    whole wheat Chocolate Banana Bread recipe

    Few days back we went for Glamping along with 4 other families and it was too much fun. Glamping is like camping with luxurious accommodation with your kitchen in between the nature...far from city. Glamping in scotland is always a worth try if you are on visit to scotland, even though we are in scotlan from past 3 yrs we never got a chance to have this experience. 
    Usually glamping sites are far from city and we have to prepack  some snacks, cooking items before we reach there.... its fun to cook along with your friends and feed the family in between the woods. When we were back we had lot of left over snacks and some fruits and few of my bananas were fully ripen. You know best ripen bananas are best for baking and have you checked my Super Moist Whole Wheat Banana bread and this time my over ripen bananas are flavoured with chocolate.
    Todays recipe is adapted from blogger friend  Rafeeda who blogs at "Big Sweet tooth", she has recently crossed 1000 recipes in her blog and yes seriously 1000 in quite small period of span and this is really inspiring. So here is her Chocolate banana bread recipe which i tweaked a bit to taste.
