  • cup + 2 TBSP melted coconut oil
  • cup maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large ripe bananas mashed (1 cup total)
  • cup coconut milk from the can
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cups banana flour
  • *optional add-ins: chocolate chips walnuts, raisins, banana slices
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease an 8” square baker.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the oil and maple syrup together together. Add the eggs and beat well; then whisk in the mashed bananas and coconut milk. (If your coconut oil solidifies on contact with cold ingredients, simply warm it for 10 to 20 seconds in the microwave.)
  3. Add the baking powder, baking soda, vanilla and cinnamon, and whisk to blend. Add banana flour, and using a big spoon, stir just until combined. Fold in optional chocolate chips, walnuts or raisins.
  4. Pour the batter into your greased baker. Top with sliced bananas (as shown) if desired. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Place the cake pan on a cooling rack and let the cake cool completely before enjoying.
