"DOUBLE DOUBLE" CHOCOLATE BANANA CAKE (grain-free, nut-free)

This “Double Double” Cake — double chocolate and double banana — is made with both ripe bananas and banana flour. It’s nut-free, grain-free, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly, and makes a perfect nutritious-and-delicious treat for breakfast, snack time, dessert, or school lunch boxes.  It has a texture that’s a cross between a fudgy brownie and good old fashioned snacking cake.
