Sheet Pan Healthy Banana Cake

I had my fourth baby last year and have been gradually trying to get back into shape.  My biggest problem is how much I love baked goods!  Seriously, give me all the cakes, brownies and cookies and I will be a happy girl!  I had a few overripe bananas lying around and thought I would try to whip up a snack that was delicious and that wasn’t too unhealthy!  This Sheet Pan Healthy Banana Cake was so easy to whip up and has no added sugar (except for the mini chocolate chips, but those can be omitted!).

Can you ever go wrong with a sheet pan recipe?!  I love that this recipe is perfect for feeding a crowd!

I was a little nervous about making a cake without any butter, added sugar or oil but this turned out perfectly!  The cake was perfectly fluffy and soft.  One of my favorite parts of banana bread and cake is that nice crust it gets (Is that a thing? Am I the only one who feels this way?), and with this cake being in a sheet pan you get that all over the whole top!  If you were really trying to save some calories, you could easily leave out the chocolate chips and it would still be delicious!  I cut our entire sheet pan into 15 big slices and each slice had about 240 calories, which is way less than a piece of traditional cake!

If you’re feeling a little snacky (I think I just made that word up) or just need to curb some sweet tooth cravings, this cake will do the trick!

    the recipe turned out great although I did use an extra banana that's what I had I figured out the carbohydrates breaking down all the ingredients and I came out with for 18 pieces one piece would be 18 grams of carbohydrates if you do it for 9 pieces then it would be 36 grams of carbohydrates per piece I'm not sure how to break down the sugar count but do you know how many calories the whole cake would be thank you
