Choco-Banana Cake

Sometimes I have leftover bananas and I make the traditional banana cake, but I thought adding a little chocolate will be interesting, this is a very easy cake and you can enjoy it anytime

2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup oatmeal (grounded)
4Tbs. melted butter
3/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp vanilla 
2 eggs lightly beaten
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup mashed bananas
3/4 cup chocolate ganache if desired for decoration

Preheat oven to 350F.
grease and line parchment , you can use a rectangle mold or any you like.

In a large mixing bowl , sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and grounded oatmeal.

In a small mixing bowl combine the butter, milk, eggs , banana and finally the chocolate chips.

Combine both mixtures, do not overmix.

Pour batter into mold

Bake until lightly golden, and a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 30 min.

Pour some chocolate ganache over it, I grounded a chocolate cookie bar and just made a little decorations over it, . hope you like it, simple and delicious.
