 Perfect Mornings - Cup of Koko Lifestyle Blog

Let’s be clear. I am not a morning person. I am the opposite. Sleep is my fave.

ONCE AGAIN… Sorry for my absence from the blogosphere. It’s been a craaazy month, with my current job finishing and saying goodbye to a whole host of excellent people (which we will come back to later!).

So what better way to celebrate than with tea, cake, and a little blog post all about the women who inspire me?

This recipe below is super easy, super tasty and perfect for breakfast or for an afternoon snack, even if I did make mine a little bit naughty! Have a bash and let me know how it tastes – I can concur that mine tastes delightful with a cup of tea. And as a cheeky tip, if you add chocolate… eat it warm! Mmmm melting chocolate and banana!
