Chocolate Chip Banana Cake (GFCF)

Chocolate Chip Banana Cake
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Grain-free, Paleo, Sugar-Free, and Corn-Free if you make your own baking powder. 

These are great alone or you can add nuts to the batter if you wish. We had a bag of dark, dairy-free, cacao chips we decided to use for a special treat! They worked perfectly, this is the best cake we've ever had! It's so moist but holds together and the banana flavor is awesome! Yum! 

2 very ripe, mashed bananas
7 eggs (If you can't eat eggs, try using flax seeds and if you do let me know how it turns out.)
1/2 cups honey or maple syrup or agave nectar (or experiment with stevia or coconut sap)   
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cups coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon cinnamon

This was really easy to make!
Beat the eggs up, don't be gentle with them - we had fun with this part.
Add in the bananas, sweetener, coconut milk, and vanilla and mix it all really well

In a small bowl mix all the dry ingredients really well and then add the dry to the wet and mix well again.

Pour it into a greased pan and baked at 350 for oh, we don't know 25 minutes or so, just keep an eye on it.

Oh before we put it in the oven we sprinkled the chocolate chips on the top! Delicious!

And pretty! Would work wonderful for parties!


Junior Chefs' Opinions!

Sister Chef: 10 stars! (out of 10) "It's really nice and gooey and it has a good, sweet flavor."
Brother Chef: "It looks like a domino. I'll eat anything that looks like a game."
Little Chef: "I smashed it all over my plate and then eatted it all up because it was yummy!"
