Banana bread in bar form

Top Review by dicentra

These are great! I used one whole banana that was getting over ripe. I was out of chocolate chips, so I chopped up a small dark chocolate bar and added that to the mix. They are a little dry, but if you microwave them and/or have them with coffee they are fine. DD (my little Monkey) kept asking for more. I love the addition of the nutmeg.
