We know you guys are a big fan of healthy snacking. So to keep this almond flour cake with mashed banana all to our selves would be just wrong. Happy that we can spread the love and share this recipe from De Hippe Vegetariër.
Instead of regular flour which contains 70% out of carbs, we use almond and coconut flour for this banana cake recipe. Almond flour is made out of ground almonds. Almonds are a great energy source of healthy fats, a lot of fiber and body lovin’ protein. They contain a lot of important vitamin B‘s and a big amount of magnesium, copper, zinc, iron, phosphorus, calcium, potassium and sodium.
Coconut flour is gluten-free, bursting with fiber and relatively low in carbs, which is nice for your blood sugar levels. Coconut flour is also a great source of protein and lauric acid.
By mixing the coconut flour with almond flour and the blending the mixture with greek yogurt, you prevent the cake from getting dry. The result: just the right amount of moist a good cake is supposed to have.
This Almond four yogurt cake is bursting with healthy fats and protein which will leave you nothing but satisfied. You can replace the greek yogurt with non-dairy yogurt if you prefer to keep this cake dairy free.
The lush layer of greek yogurt topped with juicy pear makes this cake a treat that you can enjoy every moment of the day!
