Banana and chocolate mini cakes

Banana and chocolate mini cakes are a healthy snack, made with gluten free ingredients.

I love dark chocolate with high percentages. Not only because it is good for health, if consumed in the right quantities, but because it really makes the cakes so good.

These dairy-free banana and chocolate mini cakes are ideal at any time of the day. You can replace pistachio flour and almonds with coconut or hazelnuts. The oils released from dried fruit and banana make these cakes particularly soft.
