TWD - Coco-Nana Bread
In the land of Coco Puffs and Count Chocula we need no further encouragement to put chocolate on the breakfast table. When, day after day, you're trying to get a decent breakfast into your family, the occasional inclusion of chocolate is a given.
This week's recipe is Dorie Greespan's contribution to the chocolate-laden breakfast table. Even the name Coco-Nana Bread evokes something homey, hearty and warm.
The ample cocoa powder gives this loaf body and the mashed bananas make it moist. As well as chocolate chips, I added dehydrated banana chips. Those are the curls you can see in the slice.
Still, taste-wise, we thought the two flavours fought too much. Chocolate always wins. When you're offering something healthy for breakfast, can too much chocolate ever be a problem? You'll have to make this one yourself and decide.
