Easy to make gluten free banana cake recipe
What inspired me to come up with a Gluten Free Banana Cake Recipe?
Well, I went to the markets with my hubby, and we bought a big box of bananas for a great price, as my husband loves them and the price was just so great, he decided to get the whole box.
Then I had to work out how we were going to eat them all before they went off.
I often follow recipes from my family, books or the internet. I decided this time to create my own gluten free banana cake recipe, with the healthy ingredients, to surprise my hubby for his birthday.
And it’s even better to be able to have this banana cake as a healthy snack without getting sick or feeling guilty for this treat.
Bananas have a lot of benefits. They are rich in potassium, B6, help to combat depression, etc.
Also, bananas are a great fruit for sports people, because it helps to recover the electrolytes, and prevent cramps.
In addition bananas are easy to find all year round, and anyone can eat easily.
OK, now, I’ll share with you all, my amazing gluten free banana cake recipe.
Banana Cake Ingredients:
- 6 Medium ripe bananas
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Cup of almond meal
- 1/4 Cup husk psyllium
- 1/4 Cup poppy seed
- 1/4 Cup sesame seed toasted previously
- 1/4 Cup flax seed toasted prevously
- 3/4 Cup of protein vanilla powder
- 1/4 Cup of peanuts or any nuts
- 1/2 Cup of honey or malt
- 3/4 Cup of coconut oil
- 1/4 Cup unsweet almond milk
- 1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 Teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1 Teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
- 1 Teaspoon of baking powder
Preheat the oven at 175O before you start to prepare your delicious gluten free banana cake!
Put 4 bananas into the blender with all the eggs and the flax seed (that have been toasted in a pan previously without any oil and at low temperature) blend these three ingredients until you get a smoothie.
Put the smoothie into a bowl and add the coconut oil and mix them with the mix master.
Then add the honey or maple syrup and keep mixing until the honey and the coconut oil have been combined with the smoothie.
In a separate bowl, mix the almond meal, husk psyllium, poppy seeds, sesame seed (toasted in a low heat in a pan without oil), protein vanilla powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, bicarbonate of soda and the baking powder.
I mix all the ingredients with the wisk, although some people may prefer to use a wooden spoon.
Gradually, mix the dry ingredients into the banana smoothie previously prepared. Just a bit at a time, and keep mixing with the mix master.
Repeat the same process until all the ingredients have been combined, and then add the almond unsweet milk to moisturize the mixture.
When all the ingredients are mixed put all the peanuts or the nuts that you want to use into the mix, I use peanuts and mix with the wooden spoon.
The mixture is ready to put into a tin, measuring 20 cm by 20 cm.
Take the other two bananas, cut them into slices and put one of them at the end of the tin. Then add the mixture and the other sliced banana. Put them in the top of the mixture and your gluten free banana mixture is ready to put into the oven.
I bake the cake at 175 Degrees for 45 minutes, then I turn the temperature down to 150 and leave for one hour.
I check the cake by inserting a knife in the middle to look it is ready. You will know it is cooked enough, when the knife comes out clean.
Leave the cake to cool down, before putting it on the tray, and enjoy a gluten free banana cake!
Some ideas about how we eat it are for breakfast, heated up with butter or as a dessert after dinner.
This Gluten free banana cake lasts for just 5 days, so enjoy while it’s fresh.
My hubby really loved this cake, and it’s so healthy, being full of natural ingredients, that I didn’t even feel guilty feeding it to him.
