Vegan Chia Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Glaze

This Chia Banana Cake is the perfect treat for all those banana fans out there!

Packed with Chia seeds it has a lovely crunch for some added texture, healthy fats and protein! We love bananas since they are a perfect snack- quick releasing energy to give you a bit of a kick in the morning but also packed with Potassium!

The glaze is optional and if you have any allergies you may want to skip on it, but that’s alright since it tastes amazing with and without it! 🙂
