Healthy Banana Pudding cake recipe

The smell of fresh bananas out of the oven an early winter day is divine. Especially if you add the smell of coconut and chocolate. I wanted to compose a healthy Banana Puding cake that is the perfect weekend- treat, ands cake to make if you are waiting guests. And this cake definitively is, and it is guilt- free!

  banana pudding cake  with frosting

This cake is definitively a healthier and guilt- free version of the standard banana cake. This is your one- to- go to healthy banana cake. I named it banana pudding cake because it is so moist, almost like a banana pudding! It´s propped with soluble fibre from the oatmeal, low in fat and sugar- but without compromising on the taste. The brown rice syrup contains complex carbohydrates and is a good natural sugar alternative that doesn´t spike your blood sugar as much, and has a low glycemic index. Since the banana cake contains oatmeal and loads of bananas it does need some extra baking time, but on the other hand; it is quick to put tighter! You will find full nutritional information at the bottom.

Tip: Oats are mostly gluten free, but they contain traces of gluten- SO If you are celiac you can buy gluten- free ground oats and make oat flour of it in a food processor. If you cant´t find oat flour in the store, this is also the best way to make it. If you do not have coconut flour, just use oat flour instead.

Healthy Banana pudding cake

This cake is sticky and super- moist. Cover the cake completely with the dark chocolate frosting, and and it will last longer. No one will believe that this cake is on the healthy side.

Ingredients:

4 medium eggs

3 medium bananas (300 grams)

120 grams oatmeal flour (approx 2 small cups)

2 tablespoons coconut flour (fat- reduced)

1 dL milk of choice (lactose- free, soy milk, regular)

50 grams extravirgin coconut oil OR regular butter

75 grams brown rice syrup (if you don´t have it; you can use acacia honey.)

2 teaspoons psyllium husk (fiber supplement)

1,5 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla sugar

1 teaspoon grounded cinnamon

Filling:

3-4 tablespoons skinny vanilla quark OR greek yoghurt

1-1/2 banana mashed

Method:

  1. Mix the eggs and the brown rice malt syrup/honey until it turns airy and light yellow.
  2. Mash the bananas with a fork.
  3. Add the bananas, the oatmeal flour and the rest of the dry ingredients into the egg mix. Mix very gently, as you don´t want to whisk out the air. I prefer to use a balloon whisk.
  4. Melt the coconut oil on low heat, and pour it into the cake batter.
  5. Pour into a small round cake form (approx 20 cm in diameter), and bake at 175 degrees celsius in approx 60-75 minutes. Check it right before 60 min with a fork in the middle. It should be a bit sticky.
  6. Cool down on a rack, and when ready cut in two pieces with a long and sharp knife.
  7. Mix the filling, and pour it onto half of the cake, put the other half of the cake on top.
  8. Make the chocolate frosting (recipe below) and wipe it on top and around the cake with a knife. Make sure you cover all of the cake.

Healthy Dark chocolate frosting recipe

Healthy Dark chocolate frosting is a nice flavored chocolate frosting. Due to selection of the ingredients it remains low fat while maintaining the taste.

1 tablespoon acasia honey

2-3 tablespoons skinny vanilla quark OR greek yoghurt

Method:

  1. Melt the coconut oil and chocolate slowly on very low heat. Add the honey, sea salt and additional cognac if you want.
  2. Put in a container, and cool in the fridge. Add the skinny vanilla quark and mix well. If it is too hard, make it rest in room temperature before putting on the cake.

    About how many calories per serving are in this cake? Also, if you could let me know the calories in your soft chocolate chip cookies that’d be great :)
