Paleo Banana Cake

Paleo Banana Cake

This paleo friendly banana cake is not just another wannabe pastry that only a crazed health-nut would enjoy. This is some goddamn cake. Well honestly, its extremely moist texture makes it taste a little more like a fudgy brownie than a cake, but no complaints here. And guess what? It tastes even better the next day because the individual ingredients have had more time to meld their flavors together to create a more well-rounded and intense flavor.

It’s time to bring back the fun.
