Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Cake with Chocolate Ganache

Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Cake with Chocolate Ganache

I don’t know about you, but I am always trying to figure out new ways to use up my ripe bananas. Like any normal person, I go to the grocery store every single day and I almost never leave there without a handle of bananas; thus creating an over whelming amount of yellow fruit in my kitchen.

Instead of making banana bread with those spotted bananas, try making this super moist {but not too dense} peanut butter banana cake with chocolate ganache.
