A thick slab of banana bread at your local bakery could set you back 500 calories. That hurts worse than slipping on an actual banana peel. Luckily, you can have a slimmer slice with all the sweetness and spice you crave, the cake-like texture you want to sink your teeth into and the intoxicating aroma that gets your mouth watering at first whiff. Plus, you get chocolate — chunks of it!
