Gluten Free Banana Coconut Cake Bread

I have a little 18 mile trail race in a few weeks, and this training cycle has left me craving sweet things.  I always try to be diligent and limit my sugar and processed food intake, and this time I’m I feeling much better in regards to energy return and recovery. The finished product comes out as a crossbreed between a cake and a bread, and thus could function as an awesome breakfast bread, or as a dessert cake with a fruit reduction over the top. My husband loved it, so it is a winner in our household!

Banana Coconut Bread Cake 2


2 dates

2 eggs

3 bananas

3 tsp. honey

1/2 cup rice milk

3 tbs. coconut oil

2 cups coconut flour

1 tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Grease a circular cake pan with additional coconut oil.  Then, in an a standing mixer bowl, mix eggs, dates, rice milk, vanilla, and 3 tbs. coconut oil until blended. Add honey and mix, then add bananas and mix. Then, slowly add in coconut flour while mixer is on a low setting, and mix thoroughly.

Mixture is going to have a bit of a crumbly consistency once blended thoroughly. Pour contents into cake pan, and gently press mixture in to create a gently packed, even and flat consistency.
