What’s in the Chocolate?

I love chocolates (who doesn’t?) especially dark and unsweetened chocolates. The flavor of what you are making with these chocolates intensifies. You know, a kind of delicious bittersweet thing, when the dark chocolate is with the sweet banana.

With these nutrients, dark chocolate improves blood flow and lowers blood pressure. It also reduces the risk of heart disease, prevents skin damage from the sun, and improves brain function.

What about Bananas?

Ripe bananas are really delicious and sweet. Actually, there are so many types of bananas. Sizes, shapes, colors, and tastes differ on every banana. But, we’ll stick to the yellow bananas that we usually eat and use in banana bread.

Bananas are so rich in vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. It has 0 fats, but high in fiber and a good source of potassium, iron, phosphorous and a bit of sodium. It is also very rich in vitamin A, C, and B6. Although the banana has Carbohydrates, it balances with the fiber.
