It is crazy how time flies. In my last year at school, my life looks like this: school, sleep, work, sleep, school, sleep, learn, sleep… And before you can get prepared for it, it is already december. I am so tired of this amount of things I must do. And very sorry for missing the posting days. But still, I have some great soul food for you right here.
Bananas and chocolate are known for their ability to make people happy, especially in combination.
I found this recipe about 2 years ago and loved it ever since. It is from a German Chefkoch user, which explains why it contains quite a lot baking powder and few sugar. But trust me, you won’t miss any sweetness (especially if you put a chocolate glaze on top). I threw in some nutella and baked the originally one-dish recipe in muffin molds, which made exactly 12 cute buddies.
They make a perfect snack if you have lots to learn, as they strenghten both your nerves and your concentration.
