Healthy Vegan Banana Cake

Healthy Vegan Banana Cake

Yesterday I managed to impress my children with this super flavorful, tender cake that contains only 2 tablespoons of sugar! I know from the experience with other recipes that bananas are great in any dessert of this type, but I did not expect such a result from a vegan recipe.

The ground flax seeds bring extra nutrients and compensate for the lack of eggs in the batter, so the cake holds up very well and is not too crumbly, like other fasting cakes. The coconut oil goes perfectly with the bananas, which really surprised me, as I would always avoid using it because of the specific smell. Here, it just felt exactly in its right place and once again I managed to add another healthy ingredient to our family diet.

Pour the batter into an oven pan lined with baking paper. Smooth out.

My pan is 24cm in diameter. If the pan is larger, the cake may be less tall.

Bake the cake in the preheated oven at 200 degrees C for 30-35 minutes, until well browned.

Then allow to cool completely, remove from the pan, slice and, optionally, garnish with powdered sugar.
