This new recipe is a twist on an old family favorite, Banana Oaties. This tasty treat is gluten free, dairy free, egg free and refined sugar free. These also freeze great so you can cut them into bite-sized pieces and store them in the freezer for those sweet-tooth-craving- moments.

Chocolate Banana Oatie Cake
2 1/4 cups oat* flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 medium-sized extra ripe bananas
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup applesauce, unsweetened
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup chocolate chips*
For Chocolate Sauce:
2 Tbsp. butter or coconut oil
2 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a 9″ x 9″ glass baking dish by greasing with butter or coconut oil.
Using a food processor, high speed blender or a coffee grinder, grind some oats until you have 2 1/4 cups oat flour.
In a medium bowl combine the oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and cinnamon together.
In another bowl smash the bananas. Stir in the vanilla, applesauce and honey until well combined.
Add the banana mixture into the dry ingredients and mix together until just combined.
Stir in all but 2 Tbsp. of the chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and spread evenly. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top of the batter and gently press into the batter.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes.
While cake is cooling prepare the chocolate sauce to drizzle on top of the cake.
In a double boiler (make your own by placing a glass bowl on top of a small sauce pan of boiling water) add the butter or coconut oil and allow to melt.
Stir in the honey, cocoa powder and vanilla and whisk until combined.
Drizzle over cake. Cut into 16 bite-sized pieces.
*if you need these to be gluten free just make sure your oats are from a gluten free facility as well as the chocolate chips. My favorite gluten free chocolate chips are Guittard dark chocolate.
