  • 1 cup mashed banana 2 large or 3 medium bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar substitute with granulated or brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk substitute with your favorite milk
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats*
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8" baking dish coated well with cooking spray.
  • Mash the banana in a large bowl. Add the eggs, coconut sugar, coconut oil and almond milk, and whisk well until combined.
  • Add the oat flour and oats to the bowl of wet ingredients, then sprinkle the baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt over the top. Whisk until well incorporated, then fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack, then slice, serve and enjoy!


  • Store leftover cake at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for up to one week. You may also freeze it for up to 3 months.
  • The oat flour yields a very soft crumb, so I've added rolled oats for a bit of chew. The oats may be substituted with the same amount of oat flour if desired.
  • I love substituting 1/2 cup of oat flour with teff flour, which adds a bit more structure, flavor and nutrition.
  • The almond milk may be substituted with your favorite milk.
  • Coconut oil may be substituted with your favorite oil.
