We all have a sweet tooth from time to time, sometimes it’s even every night, and it feels so good to satisfy it. If you are craving some chocolate cake but feel guilty because of all the oil and butter in it, try the double chocolate banana cake. Bananas and applesauce create the perfect moist texture without having to add any extra fat. It’s easy, delicious and healthy. Give it 5 minutes to prepare and 30 to bake and your taste buds (and hips) will be eternally grateful.
