Chocolate Banana Cream Cake

 

We always love sharing the coconut based recipes; just can’t get enough of them.

Pauline Hanuise over at One Green Planet, has an almost sinful recipe in her No-Bake Chocolate Banana Cream Cake, which is not only refined sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan, but deliciously rich!

The recipe gets off to a heart-healthy start with ingredients like coconut flour, almond butter, coconut cream, sea salt, and xylitol as sweetener for the nougat base. Note that you can choose your own favorite sweetener to replace xylitol. Bananas are placed at will for the next layer, and the chocolate cream layer follows, making this dessert stand out. More sweetener, coconut oil, cacao powder, sea salt, and cinnamon are combined to create this creamy layer, which is then topped with coconut whipped cream, cinnamon powder, cacao nibs, and buckwheat groats.
