My Favorite Banana Chocolate Cake
This cake ha been one of my favorites for a long time. The first time I had it I was at a cafe with my daughter and when I took the first bite I closed my eyes and smiled. The combination of sweet banana and rich, goey chocolate was heavenly. I savored every bit and afterwards I told the owner how much I had loved it and asked if it was possible to get the recipe.
Now you can make my favorite banana chocolate cake. It’s both gluten free and vegan. Instead of using eggs this recipe has chia eggs in it. Chia seed contains lots of healthy fats, fibers and vitamins. It’s a super smart ingredient to use if you’re vegan and still want to be able to make delicious cakes.
I usually make this cake, cut slices and keep it in my freezer. That way I have something to enjoy whenever I feel like something sweet or if I’m having friends over for coffee.
I’d love to know what you think of this recipe. Leave a comment down below and say hi.
