Easy Chocolate Chip Banana Cake

 

IMG_1326

Most the time when fruit gets to ripe I get sad, cause of course I hate throwing away food. It’s the worst! Thankfully, my friend the banana just transforms into the amazing baking goddess that she is. Yes, my banana’s are shes. I just now made that up. Anyway, so I love when my bananas get ripe. It doesn’t happen to often as I eat them daily, but on the rare occasion that they do get ripe, I get excited. Banana is a high rated flavor for me, and it always pairs well with chocolate so that’s where I started. Looking through the cupboard I see a can of white beans. I haven’t baked with white beans since my first e-book. I had a few cans taking up space so I figured why not?
