HEALTHY-ISH DOUBLE CHOCOLATE BANANA CAKE


Yes, I love chocolate and this one is a bit healthier than some cake recipes...183 calories is not too bad for a desert. Plus this is a smaller recipe so if you don't want to have a huge cake to deal with, this one is perfect.

INGREDIENTS

3 medium ripe bananas
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, lightly beaten.
1 cup flour
½ cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
mini chocolate chips for topping - optional

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat an 8 inch square pan with cooking spray.
Combine the mashed bananas and sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Add the applesauce, vanilla and egg. Stir to combine.
Stir in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add the chocolate chips and pour into the prepared baking pan.
Sprinkle mini chocolate chips over the top and bake for 25-30 minutes.
