Happlify: the best shopping guide + blog

Do you have a bunch of sad bananas lying around? Nice! Because that is the ultimate basis for this quick and delicious recipe. Normally people here turn up their noses for healthy homemade recipes, but when this recipe is in the oven everyone will be happy. So time to share it with you.

Below you will find the recipe, but feel free to vary it to taste. Besides the walnuts and chocolate, I always have the ingredients mentioned at home, but sometimes I miss something - almond flour for example - and then I just throw in something else that is similar (more coconut grater, for example).



Quantity: 1 loaf
Preparation time: 1 hour 15 minutes.

Requirements: cake tin 25 - 27 cm, baking paper and an oven

  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 6 pitted dates
  • 2 tsp baking powder (you can replace it with baking powder)
  • 100 grams of almond flour
  • 100 grams of oatmeal flakes
  • 20 grams of coconut grater
  • pinch of salt
  • 50 grams chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 50 grams chopped dark chocolate (optional)

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 ℃, grease the cake tin and line it with baking paper
  2. Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl
  3. peel the bananas and mash them into the eggs with a fork
  4. Add the dates, baking powder, almond flour, oatmeal flakes, coconut grater and a pinch of salt to the mixing bowl and puree with a hand blender until smooth.
  5. optional: stir in the walnuts and chocolate pieces with a spatula
  6. Divide the batter into the cake tin and bake for about 1 hour. Check your baked goods regularly. After 30 minutes I often cover the cake with a piece of large aluminum foil so that the top does not turn black (but that depends on our oven).
  7. After 50 minutes, check for doneness with a skewer. If the skewer comes out clean, the cake is done. Let cool for 30 minutes, remove from the mold and leave to cool on a rack for 1 hour. Your bread is ready!
TIP : we like to eat a slice with a little peanut butter
