Gooey Chocolate Banana Cake (gluten-free)

3 cups almond meal/flour
2 cups melted dark chocolate
4 large eggs, room temperature
3 large bananas, chopped
1 cup raw honey
1/2 cup pure vegetable oil
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons espresso powder

Preheat oven to 375 F

Blend all the ingredients in a blender to combine (except bananas). Fold in bananas. Pour into a prepared round 10" Springform cake pan and bake for 1 hour or until a stick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Let the cake cool completely before removing from the pan while you prepare the ganache.

Chocolate Ganache:
1/2 cup chocolate chunks (60%) or similar
1/2 cup heavy cream

Bring heavy cream in a saucepan on medium heat to simmer (don't boil). Pour over chocolate chunks and whisk until chocolate mixture is smooth and shiny. Pour over the top of the cake and spread out to cover the entire cake.

Keep refrigerated until serve.
