the first year blog
Who doesn't love chocolate cake?
I looked in the refrigerator I had a lot of yogurt so I googled chocolate cake with yogurt. When I saw this recipe for a healthier chocolate cake I knew I needed to make this....and it has bananas in it.
It was a hit with the family and it was gone in seconds!!
3 bananas, ripe
1/2 cup greek yogurt (vanilla or plain)
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 & 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 & 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips
mini chocolate chips for sprinkling on top
Preheat the oven to 350º F.
Spray an 8 inch square pan with cooking spray.
In a blender, combine the bananas, greek yogurt, honey, vanilla, and peanut butter. Blend until smooth, 1-2 minutes.
Pour the blended mixture into a mixing bowl.
Add the egg and mix in.
Add the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda, mix until incorporated.
Add the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, mix.
Pour the cake into the prepared pan. Sprinkle addition chocolate chips on top of the cake if desired.
Bake for 27-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
