This Banano cake is here to interrupt the meme-cuisine. Built on whole food technology, this potassium-rich treat is sugar-less and preparation can be done almost instantly. Thanks to the fact it is fungible, you can easily share it with your friends. Say no to junk-food and enjoy your sweet treats like a real monkey. This is not a shit-cake (until digested).

Yes, I created this one for the fam. But don't be confused by the nonsense. This cake actually IS healthy for you, as it is free from ultra-processed ingredients and gets most of its juice from ripe nanners and whole grain oats. Refined sugar makes space for dates. Enjoy some extra protein from peanut butter. A good punch of raw cocoa rounds up the picture.

Real monkeys will make sure to place a logo made from baby bananos on top of the cake, but even without, the juicy and fluffy texture will satisfy your cravings.

How to prepare a potassium-rich Banano cake

The most important ingredient are ripe Bananos. Get four of them medium sized ones. Then, blend some oats into some magical oat-flour. 5 seconds on high-transaction-speed does the trick.

Fold enough Protein to bring your baking-case to 210°C / 410°F. Put the nanners in a blender, together with oat flour, dates, lemon juice, almond milk, cocoa powder and some delicious peanut butter. Blend until you got a smooth mass. You can continue blending on low speed for a couple of minutes to make sure to fold a lot of air in. Finally, before moving into a form, add some baking soda to get this extra fluff in.

Bake the coin cake for 15-20 minutes. It should be dry on the outside and fluffy as a sponge when pushed. When poking with a toothpick only little dough should stick to it. Then it's perfect.

The cake itself

  • 250 g Oats Whole grain
  • 4 Bananas Medium
  • 150 g Dates seeds removed
  • 2 tbsp Peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 150 ml almond milk or similar

  • 1 baby banana

For the baking

  • 1 tsp margarine
  • 30 g oats

Instructions

  • if you like it chunky, skip this step. Otherwise pre-blend 250g oats in your food processor.
  • Add everything else except for the baking soda into the blender and give it a good go.
  • Grease a spring form of 28cm / 7-8in diameter with some margarine and cover it completely in oats.
  • Before transfering to the form, add the baking soda to the mass and give it a quick last mix. Pour the dough into the form and spread it out evenly with a spatula.
  • Cut the baby banana in half and place it in the middle like a real monkey would do. Bake the cake for 15-20 minutes. Use a toothpick to test if the bake is well done. A little bit of dough may still stick to it, but you shouldn't be pulling out wet mass from the cake when testing.
