snack-cakeIn a bowl aside add the flour with the chopped dates and rice flakes and mix. With a fork mash the ripe banana and add to the bowl. Add the baking powder, baking soda and olive oil. Gradually add the juice and water and stir well. At the end add the chocolate flakes and mix. Grease a cake pan with olive oil. Pour the dough and bake in a hot oven at 170 º C, for about 45 minutes. While the cake is still warm, unmold it.
To make the cake topping mix the chocolate flakes with soya milk. Cook over medium heat while stirring. In a litlle of cold milk dissolve the starch and add to the chocolate cream. Let simmer until thickened. Spread this cream over the entire cake.

When completely cool, garnish to taste (for example with fisalis (inca berries) and peppermint).

Tip: If you prefer a completely sugar-free recipe, use sugar-free chocolate chips instead of chocolate flakes.
It is important to choose quality dates, without glucose cover.
