Whole Wheat Banana Mini Cakes

It had been on my wish list to buy a square cavity brownie tray. Finally found it on Amazon. But guess what, I didn't try brownies in it, instead went ahead and made these cute mini cakes.

Had one over ripe banana languishing so gave it moksha.

The mini cakes are made with whole wheat flour, and are eggfree. For crumb topping I used homemade granola. If you don't have it readily available, feel free to use oats. Increase the sugar to 1 tbsp in that case.

These super light, super moist mini cakes are mildly sweet, so adjust the sugar as per your taste.

Yes! You can scale up the recipe to double.

You can also use the cupcake tray.
