Double chocolate banana bread

Fluffy, fudgy, rich, decadent. And still super healthy!

Do you make banana bread only when you have some very ripe, spotted bananas that nobody wants to eat?

I promise you that with this recipe you will go to buy bananas on purpose to make this delicious cake 😉

This is a very easy and quick recipe. You can even use a food processor to combine all the ingredients and have the cake ready in no time. I use my Magimix Cook Expert and it only takes 5 minutes to prepare the batter!

The bananas give a dense and rich texture to the cake and allow to use only minimal amount of oil and no eggs.
