Choc banana squares

I realise that I make a lot of recipes using banana! hehe! Ever since there was a shortage of bananas here - due to flooding/cyclones, I realise how much I missed bananas!! I love bananas! I eat them almost everyday and I love using them in cooking ^^ Or just to top off pancakes or waffles.. Mmmmm~~

Anyways saw this recipe for Chocolate-Bottom banana squares on Small small baker and it looked DELICIOUS =D I loved how there were 2 layers~ and cut into little squares for a bite size snack!
