Healthy Oatmeal Banana Cake (gluten-free)

Share

This healthy oatmeal banana cake is great as a snack or breakfast. It can also be packed into a healthy lunchbox. It’s sweetened using pure maple syrup and does not contain refined sugars. Any kind of flour can be used in this recipe. I used Cassava flour, which is gluten-free but tastes closest to wheat.

The cake has a fruity flavor. It keeps at least one week in the refrigerator in an airtight container

 

Healthy Oatmeal Banana Cake 

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup (150 gr) Instant oats*
  • 1 1/4 cups (150 gr) Cassava flour (or wheat flour, any kind gluten-free flour mix)
  • 3 teaspoons of Homemade Baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

How to make a healthy oatmeal banana cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare 9” square pan. I used a rectangle pan, so my cakes are thinner. Use a smaller pan for thicker cake. Cover with parchment paper or oil the pan.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients: oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix mashed bananas, yogurt, maple syrup, butter, egg whites, and vanilla.
  4. Combine the dry ingredients and wet ingredients.
  5. Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake at 350F for 26-29 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool completely at room temperature before slicing and serving.
