Low FODMAP Chocolate Banana Cake

I recently noticed the lack of chocolatey recipes on my blog and I had to rectify the situation asap. I was a bit baffled really because I love anything with chocolate in it! To fill this chocolate void I decided to bake a chocolate banana cake. This ones dedicated to all you chocoholic low FODMAPers.
