I love banana. Anything flavoured with banana or made with banana and I’m there for it. I mean, all you have to do is look through the blog and you will see my obsession for banana in all the banana flavoured recipes that I have shared over the years. My chunky monkey protein cake being my absolute favourite and one I remember making all the time when I first wrote the recipe.
Now I’m sharing a double chocolate banana protein cake made with oat flour and almond butter, and my goodness this one is a keeper. It’s slightly crumbly, of course chocolatey, gooey and packs a lovely banana punch both from the ripe bananas and banana flavoured protein powder that I used. You can even cut out the baking powder and turn this recipe into a delicious dairy free brownie.
