If you are looking for a dessert option, give this healthy cake a try. Check out the recipe below, courtesy Youtuber The Toasted Pine Nut.
- 1 cup – Roughly chopped dark chocolate pieces
- 3 – Medium-sized eggs
- 2 cups – Almond flour
- 2 – Bananas (half for topping)
- 1/4 cup – Almond butter
- 3 tbsp – Coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup – Cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp – Salt
- 1 tsp – Baking powder
*Begin by preheating your oven to 350F.
*Till it heats, take a large bowl and mash two bananas in it. To it, add whisked eggs, almond butter and coconut sugar.
*Mix all the wet ingredients together to make a thick paste. Then add all the dry ingredients (almond flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder).
*Keep folding the mixture until it is mixed. Then add roughly chopped pieces of chocolate. Save some for later.
*Once the mixture is folded and you have a thick cake batter, apply some soft almond butter on a cake tin so that it is easier to take out the cake once it is baked.
*Now pour the batter into the cake tin and top it with leftover chocolate pieces. You can also drizzle almond butter.
*You can also add some banana on the top.
*Bake the cake for 40 minutes. Take it out and allow it to cool before cutting into pieces.
