Coconut and Banana Cake by The Fat Foodie

I made this Coconut and Banana Cake last week because I’d noticed that I had a few bananas which were ripe, but were about to turn into high FODMAP over-ripe ones within the next couple of days and I wanted to make use of them while I still could.

I figured that’d be a great idea because it’s always nice to be able to bake something with your kids on Easter Sunday and it’s also an excellent day to celebrate the beautiful substance that is chocolate.
