Healthy Chunky Monkey Cake (Peanut Butter Banana Cake with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting)

Servings: 2 8" cake layers
Prep Time: 30 mins
Cook Time: 40 mins
Total Time: 1 hr 30 mins
This Chunky Monkey Cake is soft, fluffy, moist and delicious, it tastes too good to be healthy!

Ingredients

Cake:

  • 4 Medium Bananas (I used frozen and thawed super ripe bananas, which weighed 420g)
  • cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • ½ tbs Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
  • 5 Large Eggs
  • 300g (2½ cups) Peanut Flour
  • 96g (½ cup) Granulated Erythritol
  • 1 tbs Double-Acting Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Salt

Frosting:

  • 1 cup Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • ¾ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
  • 150g (1¼ cups) Peanut Flour
  • 20g (¼ cup) Unsweetened Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder

Instructions

For the Cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Spray two 8" cake pans with cooking spray and line with parchment circle liners.
  • In a large blender (I used my Vitamix), add the frozen bananas.  Let it thaw for about 30 minutes, then add the almond milk, vanilla extract and stevia extract.  Blend until smooth.
  • Add the eggs and blend again until smooth.  Pour the mixture into a large bowl.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the peanut flour, erythritol, baking powder and salt.  Dump the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients and whisk together.  Scoop the batter into the prepared cake pans and bake for 40 minutes.

For the Frosting:

  • In a stand mixer bowl with whisk attachment, add all of the ingredients and whip on medium speed until completely smooth.  Frost the cake, then refrigerate for ~30 minutes to firm up.  Serve and enjoy!
