Chocolate Chip Banana Cake: Grain Free and Dairy Free

Chocolate Chip Banana CakeI don’t usually like cake made with almond meal/flour, but this one turned out delicious, so I had to share. It’s rich, moist, and chocolaty.  This one is grain free and dairy free. I make several cakes at a time,wrap them in plastic, then in foil to freeze for later enjoyment.

You can also make it with Cacao Chips, if you are sensitive to chocolate.

Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Banana Cake:

3 cups Almond Meal/Flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour.)

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

3 large free range eggs

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

1 1/4 cup chocolate chip minis (I use Enjoy Life Chocolate Mini Chips)

1 cup ripe mashed bananas (2-3 bananas)

Instructions for Chocolate Chip Banana Cake:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an eight inch baking dish with coconut oil and dust with almond meal. 

Combine almond meal/flour, sea salt, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl. Whisk together coconut oil, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla in a small mixing bowl.

Gently fold wet mixture into dry ingredients, until thoroughly combined. Stir in bananas, then chocolate chips. Pour into your greased and floured cake pan. Bake at 350 Degrees F for 35 to 45 minutes or until top is golden brown and toothpick inserted into the middle comes out dry. 

Allow to cool and serve. I like to eat it with my Chocolate Chocolate Chip Coconut Milk Ice Cream. Enjoy!

Fun tip:

For a swirled look, about 10 minutes into baking, remove from oven and run a butter knife back and forth in an “S” shape through the batter.

About Nelle

I am Nelle. I grew up in rural, small town, Ohio. When I was young, I learned a lot about homesteading from my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, 4-H, FFA, and others around me.
Now, I’m all grown up, have 6 children of my own, and plan to teach them everything I know.

Here on Mama’s Homestead, we talk and write about homesteading, homeschooling, and kidsteading (homesteading with kids). We teach our kids about survival, self-sufficiency, gardening (vegetable, herb, flower), orchard, beekeeping, home keeping, soap making, harvesting, cooking, food preservation, livestock, nature, crafts, homesteading tools and wares, and more…

Welcome to my homestead…come and learn with us!
