Yes, I created this one for the fam. But don't be confused by the nonsense. This cake actually IS healthy for you, as it is free from ultra-processed ingredients and gets most of its juice from ripe nanners and whole grain oats. Refined sugar makes space for dates. Enjoy some extra protein from peanut butter. A good punch of raw cocoa rounds up the picture.
Real monkeys will make sure to place a logo made from baby bananos on top of the cake, but even without, the juicy and fluffy texture will satisfy your cravings.
