Banana Chocolate Cake

Just one look at this cake and you know it will please you.

Banana and chocolate are a classic flavour combo. This cake tastes terrific, is deceptively healthy and is a great way to use those speckled/speckling bananas. It is moist and sweet with all the natural sweetness of pureed bananas. Plus, it’s no bake! Gotta love that!

In fact, this cake is so good it doesn’t even need frosting. 😉

Avocados may taste creamy and “unfibrous”, but did you know they are an excellent source of fiber to keep your plumbing running smoothly? One avocado contains almost 13 grams of fiber, which is about half your daily need!
