Seems like the perfect gardening snack 😛 I have been doing the same sort of cleaning in my garage. Disaster!!
The combination of banana with chocolate is unbeatable. I wanted them lighter, so I used plain yogurt and in order to make them sweeter I used milk chocolate chips, the result was awesome !!!! Thanks a lot for the recipe :):)
PS: another alternative which I am going to try is to add a little bit of honey ??
That’s so good to hear! I have tried wildflower honey before and it tastes good. I really liked it but little one wasn’t too crazy about it…lol
