Tasty Tuesday: Fair Trade Chocolate Chip Banana Bread!

Picture this, a warm piece of banana bread laden with chocolate chips and topped with melted butter while drinking hot tea.  And even better it’s made with fair trade chocolate chips, fair trade sugar (though sadly I could not find fair trade bananas) and the tea is fair trade too! Plus my son’s napping so it’s quiet and I am taking a minute to relax.  For me this adds up to a pleasant afternoon.
