Good morning! Before I head off to work, I wanted to send you all this snack cake that has been breakfast,snacks and dessert for the past two days :) I love that it’s decadent tasting, but super healthy. It’s only 150 calories per piece and loaded with fresh bananas.
This recipe comes from one of my favorite blogs, How Sweet It Is. I absolutely love her recipes, and this one is a healthy alternative to a typical banana cake. It’s also really simple. Start by whisking brown sugar into one egg until smooth, then add in bananas and vanilla extract.
It’s so good, and even better the next day! Try it out and visit How Sweet It Is for even more great recipes.
