So what are the ingredients in this delicious cake?
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted, plus more for greasing the pan
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1/3 cup Earth Fed Muscle Nocturnal Casein
- 3/4 cup almond butter
- 1/3 cup maple syrup, plus more for drizzling (we used Monk Fruit)
- 1 1/4 cups roughly mashed bananas (about 3 bananas), divided, plus one whole banana
- 1 pinch salt
- Preheat the oven to 350° F.
- Line a 9-inch pan with parchment paper, and grease the bottom and sides thoroughly with melted coconut oil.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, oat flour, baking powder and protein powder.
- In another medium-sized mixing bowl, combine almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, and half the mashed bananas. Add about a quarter of the dry ingredients, and mix together. Add the remaining dry ingredients about half at a time, mixing and then scraping down the sides with a spatula after each addition. Add the other half of the mashed bananas, and mix to combine.
- Scrape the batter into the greased pan. Slice the remaining banana into three strips lengthwise, and make a pattern on top of the batter. Gently drizzle the banana slices on top with maple syrup, and sprinkle them with a pinch of flaky salt each. Place into oven and bake until the cake is puffed up and the center looks set. Start checking around 35 minutes. Let rest for 45 minutes before serving.
