CHEWY CHOCOLATE BANANA CAKE - 100 % PLANTBASED

February 21, 2017

This chocolate banana cake is incredibly delicious and healthy. The healthy fat from coconut oil, the antioxidants of raw cacao and the protein of the black beans make this cake a great recovery meal after a run or workout. The black beans together with the mashed bananas generate a chewy texture. Combined with cacao they make a chocolate dough and you'd never guess that black beans are one of the main ingredients ;)

 

CHEWY CHOCOLATE BANANA CAKE

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

  • 1 can drained black beans

  • 3 mashed over ripe bananas

  • 1 cup quick oats (gluten free)

  • 3 TBSP nut butter (almond or peanut butter)

  • 3 TBSP raw cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips,

  • couple of walnuts, pecans or any other nuts & seeds 

  • 1/2 cup pure maple or agave syrup 

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

  • 1/2 TSP baking powder

  • Topping: Peanut butter (optional)

 

HOW TO MAKE IT:

 

Preheat the oven to 180 C. Meanwhile combine all ingredients except nuts & chocolate chips in a food processor (alternatively just mash bananas & beans with a fork) until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips, nuts and seeds, then pour into a 8×8 pan.

Bake for 15-18 minutes and let cool down about 15 minutes before cutting the cake into pieces.

Serve warm or place in the fridge for a couple of hours and the cake will firm up.

Spread on peanut butter for an extra sweet nutty taste!
