Bursting with ripe bananas and just enough chocolate, this is a favorite snack, breakfast, or dessert to share with the kids.
– Bananas – Eggs – Milk – Unsalted butter – Vanilla extract and cinnamon – Whole-wheat flour – Sugar – Baking soda and powder – Chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line an 8×8-inch metal baking pan. Add the banana, eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla to a medium bowl. Whisk smooth.
Add the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the bowl. Stir gently with a spatula or spoon to combine thoroughly.
Pour into the prepared pan and top with the chocolate chips. Bake for 22-26 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out cleanly.
Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer the cake (using the parchment paper) to a wire rack to cool fully. Slice into bars and serve.
Once cool, store the sliced cake in an airtight container on the counter for 3 days or in the refrigerator for up to a week.
