Mini-cakes with banana

These mini-cakes are just delicious and low fat so that we can eat them with any guilt! They are a bit compact thanks to the banana and the rapadura sugar but this gives them their character :) Try them, they are fast to make, very good for breakfast, the afternoon, or other moment that we need a bit of boost! Your turn to play!

Also available in different formats :-)
