Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 2 cups regular oats processed into a flour
  • 1/2 cup regular oats not processed
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed firmly
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/16 tsp ground cloves optional
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil melted (we omit this)
  • 2 medium very ripe bananas peeled
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Cup dairy free chocolate chips
  • 1/4 Cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 ripe banana chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and lightly grease a 8 inch (4 cup) casserole dish or 8” cake pan. Take 2 cups of regular oats and process them in a food processor until flour like in consistency.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (processed oats, regular oats, sugars, spices, baking powder, and salt).
  3. In another bowl, mix together the oil, applesauce, almond milk, and vanilla. Add in the two peeled bananas and smash into the wet ingredients until smooth.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir until just combined. Now fold in the chips, optional walnuts, and the chopped banana.
  5. Spread into prepared pan and bake for 36 minutes at 350F or until a toothpick comes out clean. The cake must be cooled for at least 15-20 minutes before attempting to remove.
  6. Once fully cooled slice. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Makes 8-10 servings.
  7. Bake for 36 minutes at 350F or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes so it can firm up and set otherwise it will fall apart when you try to get it out.
