Paleo Flourless Banana Chocolate Cakes

It’s simple really.  I love chocolate.   Yep, that about covers it.

Today I was craving something dense, chocolate-y, but not a sugar-laden mess.  I’ve also been thinking about chocolate covered bananas.  I have no idea why, except that the flavor combo of chocolate and bananas really floats my boat.

Sometimes you just have to face these things head-on…am I right?

So here’s what I created…chocolate-y, a little gooey, a little banana-y (wow I’m really pulling out those high-tec adjectives aren’t I?) and super quick!  My oldest daughter loved it still warm, and my youngest loved it chilled.  I’m easy…don’t let that get around…and I liked it both ways.  So be sure to take a taste both warm and cold and see what floats YOUR boat!

  1. 1) Melt chocolate slowly in the microwave. I like to put it in for about 20 seconds, stir, then heat at 10 second increments until melted.
  2. 2) In a medium bowl mix together cocoa powder, maple syrup, pumpkin, bananas, eggs and vanilla.
  3. 3) Add melted chocolate and stir to combine.
  4. 4) Pour batter into 4 greased ramekins and bake at 350 degrees for about 30-35 minutes, or until the center is set and firm to the touch.
