Banana and Chocolate Jam

My jam is banana jam. With chocolate. Perfect with pancakes and crepes.

All you need to do is crumble some cookies on top of it. Might even try it on a slice of toast for breakfast or as a snack 8) The amount this recipe is small, just enough for you to try it out and see if you’re OK with the amounts of sugar and chocolate. And the most important thing, you can make it all year round.
