Double Chocolate Banana Cake (No Eggs and No Butter / Oil Recipe)

I came across this moist and yummy cake when I was looking for something that included both chocolate and banana. The person who posted this baked it in a 8x8 pan but I halved the recipe and baked in a 6 inch loaf pan since I was baking this for one, my daughter. The loaf uses a good dose of fruit in the form of banana and apple sauce. The latter replaces the fat (butter/oil) and hence cuts down some of the calories from the recipe. I further cut down the calories by omitting the egg from the recipe. It was not a light and airy cake but still was a super moist one and was surely a winner. Everyone at my home loved the texture and taste of this treat. I am sure that this guiltless treat is going to be featured in my kitchen more and more in the future. Unfortunately, the tiny loaf was gone before I could take the pictures of the sliced cake and all I could manage were these pictures. I am going to update them later.
Source: Here
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 bananas
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
6 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

* Preheat the oven to 350 deg F. Grease a 6 inch loaf pan.
* Mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
* Blend bananas and brown sugar together. Add apple sauce and vanilla and mix together.
* Next add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well to incorporate. Fold in the chocolate chips, saving some. 
* Pour the mixture into the loaf pan. Sprinkle the saved chocolate chips over the surface. (I ended up with a little left over batter that yielded me an extra muffin.)
* Bake until a tooth pick inserted at the center comes out clean, about 35 - 40 minutes.
