Cinnamon & Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Loaf

This sweet loaf has a really special ingredient that may sound a little strange, but it’s a total game changer

Sweet potato is loaded with nutrients and so much plant based goodness, and it seems a shame to only use it in savoury recipes. This recipe is perfect for any banana bread lovers out there and would be an ideal bake for afternoon tea with friends or family. You could even add in extra special ingredients like chopped hazelnuts for something more!
