  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ C Wholemeal flour
  • ½ C Dark chocolate chips (optional)

Step 3. Preheat oven to 180°c

Step 4. Lightly grease a 10cm x 20cm loaf tin and line with non-stick baking paper.

Step 5. Pour the banana mixture in to the tin and top with the extra halved banana (cut side up).
