Choco-Banana Cake

Some days you just need to cake it up! Now we aren't opposed to indulging at Menos Mas. I have a crazy sweet tooth but I do invest in quality ingredients that are fresh, unrefined. 

Unsweetened Dark Chocolate contains antioxidants, magnesium and it helps combat stress and anxiety. I could also talk about the virtues of the banana, rich in potassium, iron and B vitamins and facilitates digestion.  Little changes like using coconut oil to grease your pan over butter (like I do here) are the small choices that make up the Menos Mas lifestyle.

Which brings us to the conclusion that this cake can still provide good nutrients.  But be cautious. Our main focus is always about BALANCE. So sure, make the cake, eat the cake, love that cake but don't do it all day everyday. 

In this recipe, I replaced milk with a Greek yogurt and it's amazing how soft it makes the cake even the next day.
