Some healthy banana cake goodness

Baking a banana cake is always a good idea! Do you like the sweet taste of banana? Then this healthy banana cake recipe will make you a happy girl! It doesn’t contain any nasties, is low in calories, carbs and sugar AND is very easy to make. YES! It’s time to share one of my all-time favorite recipes on the blog.

Every time I have some (over)ripe bananas I put them to good with a left-over banana cake recipe. The sweet taste of ripe bananas makes it unnecessary to add sugar to your cake and keep it clean. As always  I like to keep my recipes simple and use raw, organic and clean ingredients only. I prefer to bake the healthy banana cake on a Sunday and keep it in the fridge so I can treat myself on a loaf of cake during the week. Eat some banana cake for breakfast, lunch or as a clean snack!

INGREDIENTS

– 3 ripe bananas
– 3 eggs
– 100 gr. almond flour
– 50 gr. oats
– 2 tspn baking powder
– Walnuts: it will give your cake a delicious crunchy bite! 😉
– Salt
– Optional: honey

3. Now crumble the walnuts and add it to the mixture and stir (don’t mix it with the blender!).
4. Take the cake tin and put the banana cake batter in it.
5. Bake the banana cake in the oven for approx. 45-50 minutes.
6. Ready! Let the healthy banana cake cool down for 5 minutes in the cake tin before placing it on wire rack to cool down completely.

    Looks delicious! 🙂

    I think I will try making it this weekend. I unfortunately can’t get almond flour or even almonds here in Angola so might have to do some experimenting!

      Hi there, sweet Holly!

      Thank you for having a look on the Foodie-ness blog and writing me a message 🙂
      Oh you should definitely give it a try, it’s so delicious..I can’t get enough ha ha! You can make almond flour yourself with almonds, but if you can’t get any almonds I would advice you to simply use another type of flour. Is that doable for you?

      Good luck and tag me in a picture of your Holly Banana cake, yeah!

      With love,
      Carolina.

    Made the banana bread yesterday Carolina! It is great!

    I used regular plain flour instead of the almond meal and pecans instead of the walnuts. I also used 2 teaspoons of honey. It took around 1 hour to cook.

    Looking forward to this healthy treat tomorrow at work 🙂

    I tagged you in my photo of the loaf on Instagram 🙂

    Thanks for the recipe! X
