Double Layer Banana Chocolate Chip Cake (vegan + gluten-free)

Double Layer Banana Chocolate Chip Cake made with organic sprouted brown rice flour and all vegan ingredients for an easy and delicious homemade cake!

It’s not my birthday. It’s not anyone’s birthday that I know of but today we are making a homemade CAKE because why the heck no?

And it’s not just any cake. I whipped up a Double Layer Chocolate Chip Banana Cake that is vegan, gluten-free and hands down the easiest homemade cake ever. I know we all cheat with baking mixes a lot, but this recipe is too easy not to make in the kitchen.

I love that you only need a few simple ingredients like mashed banana, unsweetened applesauce, coconut oil and the flour we use is an organic sprouted brown rice flour.

This CAKE is perfect to whip up for dessert for the week or to bake for a friend, family member, yourself – literally anyone. It isn’t overly indulgent and at first I wanted to call it a breakfast cake because in this home, it is acceptable to eat this for breakfast with a little coconut yogurt and fruit.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease two 8 inch round pans with coconut oil (I used these pans)
  2. Mix together the flax eggs, mashed banana, applesauce, coconut oil and vanilla extract with a large spoon or mixer until well combined
  3. Add in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and coconut sugar and mix again until there are no clumps and batter is smooth
  4. Fold in dark chocolate and pour evenly into each round baking dish
  5. Bake in oven for 18-22 minutes then allow the cakes to cool for about 30 minutes before frosting

Will stay good for about 5 days on counter in airtight container or you can freeze this cake for up to 2 months

  1. Have you tried any other flours? I’d love to try this recipe but have no idea where I can get sprouted brown rice flour locally.
