Every time is a good time for banana chocolate chip snack cake!
Banana Chocolate Chip Snack Cake

Yesterday might have been Pi(e) Day, but I hope you still have room for CAKE.

I know I sure do.

Right next to the baby’s legs somewhere, I swear there’s enough space in my belly for exactly one slice. No more, no less.

(But mostly no more because HEARTBURN, my friends. #thestruggleisreal)

Banana Chocolate Chip Snack Cake

Because it’s such confined quarters in there, I have to be really selective about what I choose to ingest on any given day.

It’s just too sad to only have one or two bites of something only to realize that (a) I’m totally full and (b) IT WASN’T EVEN WORTH IT.

Not saying that I’m overly emotional/hormonal or anything, but such an occurrence may or may not have brought me to tears…once or twice. Ahem.

Banana Chocolate Chip Snack Cake

Of course, biting into this banana chocolate chip snack cake also brought me to tears…OF JOY.

It was that good.

And it was that good even while being part whole wheat, part almond flour, not that sugary, and full of the goodness that is Silk’s Dairy Free Yogurt Alternative, which, if you haven’t had it – YOU MUST. It’s creamy and velvety smooth and melts on your tongue in blazes of vanilla glory. For real.

You used to only be able to buy Silk’s Dairy Free Yogurt Alternative in single serving containers, but now I am extra excited because they have finally come out with a 24 oz container that comes in both vanilla (<– my favorite for snacking and baking) and plain (<– my favorite for everything else). (Here’s a coupon in case you want to try it for yourself!).

So perfect for my never-ending snacking needs.

In fact, my current eating game plan is to alternate bites of cake with Silk dairy free yogurt spoonfuls all the live long day…

…and I’m not even the least bit sorry for it.

  1. There is always, always room for cake! And I may or may not have bought stock in Tums during my pregnancy…

  2. Aaaaaah, this looks sooooo good! I definitely need a slice. Right. Now.

  3. I had never experienced heartburn until I was pregnant with Haley. And then it hit me like a ton of bricks one day and I was like, “Ooooooh! THIS IS HEARTBURN.” And it was awful. But I definitely would have made room for a slice of this cake. Definitely.

  4. I wish I had a slice to go with my coffee right now!

  5. I definitely have room for this healthy and delicious banana cake!!

    And thanks for helping me realize what I’m doing with those bananas on the counter.

  13. i love the sound of this!! sorry about the pregnancy woes. i fortunately haven’t experienced heartburn (**crossing my fingers now) but i DO get the ‘no room for dessert’ issue. sooo a few times i may have had dessert first to make sure there was room. hahaha!

  14. Oh, I remember those squishy days like they were yesterday! There is definitely room for gorgeous banana chocolate bread though! xo

  15. Twiddling my thumbs for my bananas to ripen now 😛

    Thanks for the coupon! I love this flavor combo.
    Hey, I don’t know if you much fried foods, I suspect not, but eating massive quantities of Spring Rolls when I was pregnant gave me horrendous heartburn.
    Can’t wait to see that sweet babe. I know she is eating well!

    Enjoying following your journey to motherhood.
