Banana Bundt Cake
• 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
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
Make sure you grease your pan and dust with flour or cacao powder.
And it will pop out nice and easy!
Drizzle with chocolate!

What to do with super ripe bananas? Make banana bread, custard, cookies or baked oatmeal! Yes oatmeal that’s it! This is super easy to make and so very delicious. Save leftovers for the next few breakfasts or if you have a large family this will feed them!
First make sure your bananas are super ripe!
Mash those bananas, 3 medium size bananas should give you about 1-1/2 cups mashed.
Mix all ingredients together.
Pour into dishes.
I used 2 ramekins and 8×8 glass baking dish. Top with extra strawberries and banana slices.
Bake in oven @ 375° for about 25mins.

I have always wanted to make my own granola as I eat alot of it. Finally made some and it was so easy, step by steps images and recipe →→
• 2 Cups large flake oats
• ½ Cup nuts, chopped (I used almonds & hazelnuts)
• ¼ Cup seeds (I used pumpkin)
• ½ Cup dried fruit, chopped (I used apricots)
• 2 Tbsp maple syrup
• 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
• 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
• Pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 300º. Combine all ingredients with your hands in large mixing bowl. Using your hands makes the coconut oil melt and is easier to make sure everything is incorporated. Spread on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until lightly toasted.
Cool and store in jar or container for up to 2 weeks.
I love my granola with plain greek yogurt and some fresh berries ♡
