Healthy Banana Cake

When in the mood for something sweet, I can’t even allow myself to think about having something else than 10 g of dark chocolate or a fruit. See, I’ve become accustomed to a generally healthy lifestyle. Milk chocolate bars and potato chips have been out of my vocabulary for years now – except for my pregnancy cravings which I have, thank God, grown out of. But sometimes, a fruit or a tiny piece of dark chocolate just don’t cut it. That’s when a homemade dry cake comes to mind. Since we’ve been on a strict healthy diet lately, a banana cake made of solely healthy ingredients was the only choice.This recipe is my own – a combination of healthy banana cake recipes I’ve researched. It works and lasts for a week at room temperature, tightly covered of course.
