I absolutely love banana cake and I was excited when I saw a healthy version on Instagram with no sugar! It was so easy to throw together and makes a perfect snack or breakfast topped with nut butter 🙂 A great ‘cake’ to put in the kids lunch boxes too to sneak in some extra nutrition.
I played around with the recipe a bit; the original version had walnuts which I swapped for ground almonds, gluten free flour which I swapped for coconut flour and then I added an extra banana and some more coconut oil to make it extra moist!
Thanks to Frazanah at Inside Out Nutrition for the original recipe inspiration 🙂
You will need:
- 1 cup of ground almonds
- 1 cup of ground oats
- 1/4 cup of coconut flour
- 2 eggs
- 4 small bananas, mashed
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- 1 heaped tsp of baking powder
- 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of melted coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
Mix all the ingredients together and place in to a loaf tin lined with baking parchment. Cook at 190c for 30-35 minutes 🙂
