Some of the best recipes of all arise from a craving, or an experiment, in this case, I had a craving to make my healthy banana bread, but I did not have the ingredients to make it, then I had to improvise, I mixed all my favorite ingredients, and taran, came up one of my best recipes so far!
This cake is super moist, with a lot of banana and nutty flavor, have you ever tried this combination of banana and walnut? It is a real bomb, and all the chocolate chips on top give a great touch, why, who does not like chocolate with
Particularly I am a huge fan of bananas in the kitchen, they are very versatile, they serve to give a wet touch to the cakes or desserts, they give a rich fruity flavor, and they help to integrate the mixture, in fact sometimes the bananas are used to replace the eggs!
This is an easy cake to make, basically consists of 2 steps, process the nuts and the oats, separately, until turning them into flour, and then mix all the ingredients and bake.
This recipe can be vegan by replacing the eggs with a vegan replacement (see the notes to see which ones I use).
The only flour that is used is the oatmeal, so if you want a gluten-free version you should use gluten-free oatmeal, which you surely get at a store specializing in products for celiacs.
