Chocolate Banana Bundt Cake

Finally I got myself a bundt cake pan! It’s about time haha! So my for my first cake I wanted to try an oat flour cake plus I had some really ripe bananas so added those too and of course I added cacao powder for the chocolate! I also used VitaFiber powder for extra fiber, if you haven’t tried check it out here VitaFiber

Banana Bundt Cake
Yield: 16

Ingredients:
• 3 medium ripe bananas (appx. 2-1/2 to 3 Cups mashed)
• 2 Tbsp Honey
• 1/3 Cup plain greek yogurt
• ¾ Cup Almond milk or milk of choice
• 2 Eggs
• 2 Egg Whites
• 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
• 3 Cups Oat flour
• ½ Cup Cacao Powder
• ¼ Cup VitaFiber Powder (Sub for granulated sweetener)
• 2 Tbsp baking powder
• 2 tsp cinnamon

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease/flour bundt pan (I used cacao powder after greasing with coconut oil – do not skip this step!).

2. Mash Bananas in bowl then whisk in honey, greek yogurt, almond milk,
eggs and vanilla until well combined.

3. Mix together flour, cacao powder, sweetener, baking powder and
cinnamon. Add dry to wet ingredients and stir until no clumps left.

4. Pour into greased bundt pan and bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes.

5. Let cake cool and turn onto serving dish and drizzle with chocolate and fruit if desired (My chocolate drizzle is 1/4C of heated almond milk poured over 1/4C chocolate chips and stirred until melted, for a thicker ganache use 1/3C chocolate chips).

Notes: Nuts, chocolate chips or dried fruit would work well stirred into
batter.

Make sure you grease your pan and dust with flour or cacao powder.

And it will pop out nice and easy!

Coconut PB Chocolate Chunk Muffins

image

I love seeing pictures of food and trying to recreate them, this is what I did with these muffins. Coconut, peanut butter and chocolate muffins was the verdict! They looked very similar to the image I seen and the taste is amazing! Working with coconut flour can be tricky but with the right ratios of other ingredients it can turn out amazing!

image

Baked fresh for breakfast.

image

They turned out so good, I’ve had my fails with coconut flour before. So happy how these turned out, not dry at all. Yummy!

image

Let cool slightly before taking liners off. Or be courageous and just peel it hot you may be licking the liner though …

Here is the recipe:

Coconut PB Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Ingredients:

•6 eggs, room temperature
•1/2 Cup natural peanut butter
•2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
•2/3 Cup scant coconut palm sugar
•1/4 tsp Pink Himalayan salt
•1/2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
•1/2 Cup coconut flour, sifted
•1 tsp baking powder
•1/2 tsp cinnamon
•1/3 Cup shredded unsweet coconut
•1/3 Cup dark and white chocolate, chopped into chunks (save extra for topping)

Method:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line or grease 12 muffin tin. With electric mixer beat together eggs, peanut butter, coconut sugar, salt and vanilla until well combined then while still mixing add melted coconut oil. Sift coconut flour, baking powder and cinnamon into separate bowl. Add into batter and mix until smooth. Stir in chocolate chunks and shredded coconut. Pour into prepared muffin cups coming up about 3/4 of the way. Decorate the muffin tops with extra chocolate chunks and shredded coconut if desired. Bake at 375°F for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool slightly. Yield 12 muffins.

You can use muffin liners, silicone liners or just grease your muffin tin.
