Coconut Chocolate Cake
Banana bread can be seen in many different combinations. We also love banana bread ourselves, because bananas make your cake nice and sweet. But be aware! Banana bread is often seen as a healthier alternative than normal cake. However, due to the many additions it can still become a pretty unhealthy cake. Do you want this cake to contain less sugar? Then leave the chocolate behind, because the cake is still very tasty. But if you feel like pampering yourself then the chocolate is a very tasty addition.

- 3 banana’s (preferably really ripe)
- 200 g of spelt, oat or whole wheat flour
- 4 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 2 tsp of baking powder
- 3 eggs
- A drop of vanilla extract/aroma
- 50 grams of coconut flakes
- 100 g of dark chocolate
- Optional: 30 g agave syrup
Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius. Melt 4 tbsp of coconut oil. Put the banana, eggs, flour, coconut oil, baking powder and vanilla extract (if agave syrup, add this as well) in a blender and mix it until it is a smooth mix. Mix everything well, either with a whisk, a spatula or with a mixer. Chop the 40 grams of dark chocolate into small pieces and add this as well. Put a baking sheet in a cake tin and add the cake batter in the tin. Put this in the oven for about 50 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the remaining (70 grams) chocolate au bain-marie. Spread the chocolate over the top of the banana bread, finish with coconut flakes and put in the fridge for another 15 minutes.
Options: add some lemon juice in the batter, this will give it a nice and bit of a sour taste!
