Course: Dessert
Keyword: dairy free cake, gluten free cake
Servings: 4 people
Cost: 5


  • ¼ cup Almond milk or other dairy-free milk
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 extra ripe bananas, smashed
  • 3 cups ground almond flour
  • 1 tbsp ground chia  seeds
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • 1 pinch Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two round baking dishes with parchment paper.
  • In a blender, blend milk, eggs, and bananas
  • In a large bowl mix almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground chia, baking soda, baking powder and walnuts
  • Pour wet into the dry ingredients
  • Pour into 2 round baking dishes and bake for 35-40 minutes
  • Bake until the top gets golden brown.


Notes: You can buy almond flour in most natural food stores (sometimes called almond meal).  Don’t expect this bread to puff up like regular banana bread – it stays dense and moist. You have to watch as almonds burn easily so if you see it browning on the top and its not yet cooked place some greaseproof paper over the cake.
