Primal Cinnamon Apple Chips

Okay, first off, let me rant about how RUDE some people can be in the grocery store. It’s unreal…ugh!

With this in mind, I endeavored to create a low-fat breakfast bread with bananas, chocolate chips, and of course, deliciousness. It was my first time using this recipe, so I wasn’t sure how it would come out. Fortunately, the final product ended up tasting out-of-this-world-stupid-amazing, and if you love banana bread as much as I do, I HIGHLY suggest you keep reading…
