Banana and Date Bread

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

I just made date and banana cake from the recipes at Natural Evolution. WOW it turned out beautifully and tastes amazing. I half expected it to be quite a heavy cake, but it’s not.

I changed some things. I used raw caster sugar and Natvia (the baking version of Stevia). I also used softened butter not melted and creamed it with the sugar first. (read somewhere that makes cakes lighter). And I used olive, not coconut oil.

I bought my flour from “The Produce“, a bulk food shop in Ashgrove which sells green banana flour (and anything else you could ever want).

This wonderful Readers Recipe contains minimal sugar and uses banana flour. It is definitely a great recipe to try if you want a healthier treat with your next coffee.
