Banana Peanut Butter Cake with Chocolate Chips

It’s nothing strange that many people buy fruit and the one fruit that tends to go brown the fastest are bananas. We always try to think of creative ways of using our overripe bananas, because well, I just hate throwing away food. So as a result of this times creative thinking, I came up with a banana and peanut butter cake, which is totally gluten free, I use almond flour and coconut flour, and of course I don’t think I could go without adding in some chocolate chips! I just had to! There is no ‘sugar’ per say in the cake itself, Ive used maple syrup.. a better alternative to sugar. However, as it is a cake, and I do love my layered cakes, I decided to make the peanut butter frosting with icing sugar. So you get your sweetness there, but you can totally skip that part if you like 🙂 Its practically a one bowl bake (ok maybe two bowls, lol) it’s very very easy peasy, you just let the oven do the work.
