Banana Oat Snack Cake with Dark Chocolate

Banana Oat Snack Cake with Dark Chocolate

Do you have your favourite recipe that you always make again and again instead of trying something new? Well, if yes, you’re not alone! Every time I crave something sweet and do not have too much time for baking, I reach for this banana snack cake. It’s not too dry, too sweet or too heavy. It has an amazing light texture, nice banana flavor and it’s also super duper easy!

This cake is made only with oat and almond flour. If you have gluten intolerance, use gluten free oats. I always grind oats and almonds at home, it’s way cheaper then buying a flour.

Let me know if you try the recipe. :) Have a great Friday and enjoy your weeekend too! xoxo
