HEALTHY NUT-FREE BANANA & DATE CAKE
3 very ripe mashed bananas (the more brown/spottier) the better
3 fresh chopped medjool dates
½ cup melted unsalted vegan butter of choice (I use nuttlex)
Vegan egg replacer for vegan option or 2 large eggs for vegetarian
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1-2 tablespoons coconut milk
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup gluten free oat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch baking powder
½ teaspoon himalayan crystal salt
¼– ½ cup stevia or natural granulated sweetener of choice (sweet tooth’s add ½ but test flavour first) (I used Natvia sweetener which may be slightly less sweeter than some other stevias so please be mindful of this).
1 Preheat oven to 350°F / 170°C degrees and grease a 9X5 loaf tin with coconut oil spray.
2 Place all dry ingredients & dates in a small bowl & mix.
3 Place all wet ingredients in a small bowl and mix.
4 Combine both wet & dry ingredients together in 1 bowl until well incorporated.
5 Pour mixture into prepared/greased loaf tin.
6 Bake for 45- 60 minutes (check with a toothpick every so often from 30-45 mins as all ovens vary). Allow to cool and enjoy!
