Author: Nicole
  • 2 medium (over)ripe bananas
  • 200 g Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3+1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 125 g whole wheat flour
  • 100 g oat flour (ground oats)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp milk
  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C and grease and/or line a cake tin with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas.

  3. Add the yogurt, eggs, vanilla extract and 3 tbsp maple syrup.

  4. Mix well.

  5. Then in a separate bowl, mix the whole wheat flour, oat flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry mixture into the wet and mix until just combined.

  6. Pour about 2/3 of the mixture into the prepared cake tin.

  7. Then add the cocoa powder, milk and 1 tbsp maple syrup to the remaining batter and mix well.

  8. Pour into the cake tin.

  9. Now using a spoon or a knife, swirl through the batter to create a marble pattern.

  10. Bake for about 40-45 minutes until a tooth pick inserted in the middle comes out clean (a few crumbs is fine).
