So lately I have been craving chocolate yet I am so not into dairy…I have large number of reasons why…animal cruelty, cocoa beans being picked by enslaved children, dairy causing a number of heart, lung, pancreas issues and maybe one day, I’ll go a little deeper with the results of my research. In the mean time, being human, female and pregnant, sometimes I just gotta indulge.
Indulgence still comes with responsibilities. I strongly encourage you to purchase as much fair trade food as much possible. We love our animals as vegans but more importantly then them, we love our people.
Ok. So getting back to business…Vegan Chocolate Banana Loaf.
Its pretty, I know. I had help…
They LOVED it!! Its a great one for kids. Here’s the Recipe!
