30 Second Chocolate Banana Slice

My favourite recipes are the ones where you chuck in all the ingredients and mix! This is light, fluffy, chocolate-y with a hint of banana, and very very easy to eat!

This is the first recipe I’ve created since finding out I’m pregnant with my 2nd lot of twins as I’ve been feeling sooo sick and uncomfortable this pregnancy (moreso than with the boys!)! Was a quick and easy way to use up the 2 lonely overripe banana’s on my bench!
