Introduction

This vegan cake was a MAJOR hit at work - and given the hefty amount of graham cracker streusel in and on the moist snack cake it's easy to see why! This batch got amped up even more with a layer of dried bananas in the middle - flavour to the max!

Ingredients

    2 bananas, peeled
    ⅔ cup sugar
    tsp salt
    tsp cinnamon
    tsp nutmeg
    1 tbsp ground flaxseed
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    3 tbsp canola oil
    ⅔ cup milk alternative (I used unsweetened flax milk)
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    3 tbsp dehydrated banana slices (not banana chips), optional
    ---
    Topping:
    3 tbsp coconut oil or vegan butter
    2 tbsp coconut sugar or dark brown sugar
    cup whole wheat flour
    cup graham cracker crumbs (crush these for a vegan option)
    2 tbsp water

Tips

NI includes dried banana


Directions


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line an 8 square pan with parchment.
Mash bananas with the sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, flaxseed, vanilla, oil and milk until smooth.
Add the flour and baking powder, mixing well.
In a medium bowl, cut together the coconut oil, sugar, flour and graham cracker crumbs until mealy. Add water and stir to create large crumbs.
Pour one quarter of the batter into the pan and top with dehydrated bananas (if using) and half the crumb mixture.
Pour the remaining batter over and top with the remaining crumb mixture. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool completely in the pan.
