Notes

Add a handful of walnuts for extra delicate crunch.
It’s best to use dark chocolate chips for a darker and richer chocolate taste, but you can substitute them for milk chocolate buttons too.
I use choc chips because I love the chunks of chocolate in the cake, but you can also use natural coconut powder to make it extra chocolaty. Just replace 1/2 cup of flour with 1/2 cup of natural cocoa powder.
You may want to add a couple of tablespoons of honey or the cake may come out too bitter.
If your bananas are not ripe and soft yet, you can put them in a 150-degree oven for about 20 minutes to ripen them quickly.
You can add a scoop of protein powder to the batter to boost the protein content.Add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the mixture if you want some extra taste.
