Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This sweet dessert is perfect for a Valentine's Day treat.

I love to eat healthy as much as possible, but I do need to eat something sweet every night. Valentine's Day is the perfect time for a chocolate-filled cheat day. This banana bread recipe is made from all-organic ingredients and came from one of my close friends Jessie. Jessie lists LOVE as one of the ingredients. The kids and I love baking this together, and it's even more fun when you use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to shape each slice! Enjoy.
