I use semi-sweet chocolate chips in this cake as I like the bite of the chocolate in contrast with the sweet banana cake. I used regular size chocolate chips but you can easily use chunks and mini chips as well. Even white chocolate chips would be a delicious addition.

I really like having this banana snack cake in the house, it is a good for you snack that gives the kids a few more servings of fruit and let’s face it- this mom needs all the help she can get in that department.

Now if chocolate icing was a fruit on the other hand…… we would have it made!
What are some of the after-school snacks you make for your kids? Do they snack or do you just give them dinner? Our kids get off the bus at 4:30 so sometimes it is a hard choice. Usually we see how much homework they have and if it is a lot, they have a snack first, then do their homework then dinner. But homework is a whole different topic for another day.
