Chocolate Banana Bread / Cake

Is it bad? I like eating desserts for breakfast such as this chocolate banana bread. Dark chocolate in the banana bread tastes SO good. Aside from making smoothies with ripe bananas, banana bread in the instant pot is what I like to make. Why in the instant pot vs oven? So you don’t need to babysit your cake, but also because the cake comes out moist.
