This is an updated version of an old favorite. Still a wonderful comfort food. Cut a slice and slather with some creamy butter; sit and enjoy with a cup of your favorite cuppa tea!

I changed the recipe for family preferences, so used spelt flour, honey instead of sugar, oil instead of butter and shortening, and dark cocoa instead of the chocolate. WOW! This is a sophisticated banana bread! I will have to more more tomorrow!
