Last weekend I am looking at my overripe bananas and figured I’d look up some gluten-free banana bread. This recipe was inspired by Taste of Home which sounds absolutely delicious. However, I adapted mine to make it low carbohydrate, with no sugar added and gluten-free.
We all love a moist, delicious piece of cake. However, in order to enjoy an unprocessed cake that isn’t filled with partially hydrogenated oils, tons of sugar, preservatives and other chemicals that are harmful to our health– we have to go back to basics and do make it from scratch.
Luckily I have found a way to make a healthy and scrumptious banana carrot cake you will never forget.
What? a healthy cake you say. Yup!
I don’t really want to sound pretentious, but this cake was so good that the only reason it lasted two days is that I made it at night. Between my husband, two friends, my son and I (poof) gone the next day. Needless to say, it was a bit hit and so I decided to share it with you.
Sugarless Flourless Soft Cake? Yes, Ma’am Here’s How…
This cake was absolutely moist and delicious, especially a few minutes after coming out of the oven… I am sure your family and guests will be delighted with this cake at your next gathering or holiday party. I made three small cakes in four-inch diameter bakeware (see instructions for other options). However, feel free to adjust the ingredients and ratios to make a larger cake.
I’d like to add that this recipe was definitely husband and children approved. I feel that the key to this fabulous slightly sweet and moist cake was the apple butter made from scratch. By doing this you ensure the freshness of the ingredients, plus combining the grass-fed butter offers Omega 3′ fatty acids. As you may know, grass-fed butter is a great source of CLA (conjugated linoleic Acid) good for cardiovascular and brain health among others.
For this recipe, I used swerve (try it here) which is a natural sweetener that is Diabetic friendly and has no calories. It is amazingly easy to use, measures just like sugar in any recipe, and tastes great. What is the added bonus? It has no extra calories, the hazardous chemicals of artificial sweeteners or the horrible side effects of sugar in your body such as chronic inflammation, eczema, mental and behavioral changes, artery plaque (in combination with bad cholesterol) and the list goes on.
