- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 cup gluten free flour (one to one replacement)
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 medium bananas (very ripe, mashed.)
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup plain yogurt (can use dairy free)
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup one to one gluten free flour
- 2/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- milk of choice until icing reaches desired consistency (about 1 tbsp or so)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper.
- In a small bowl mix together the almond flour, gluten free flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In a separate large bowl mix together the mashed bananas, egg, yogurt, sugar, and vanilla. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet and stir until smooth.
- To make the crumb: mix all the ingredients together until completely mixed and crumbly. Set aside.
- Pour the batter into the pan and then evenly sprinkle the crumb on top. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- For the icing (optional): whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Note: a little milk goes a long way so I recommend slowly adding your milk to your powdered sugar until your icing reaches your desired consistency. Once the cake is cooled, drizzle the icing on top and enjoy!
- Baking time may vary depending on the size of your bananas. Keep an eye on it and make sure not to under or over bake it!
- If you don’t want to use butter you can also use melted coconut oil.
- Be careful not to add too much milk to your powdered sugar or the icing will be very thin. If it turns out thinner than you want just add more powdered sugar.
