How to cook it

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together mashed banana, palm sugar, oil, milk, eggs and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour blend, baking soda, cinnamon, xanthan gum and salt. Dump dry ingredients onto wet ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in carob chips.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes until snack cake is firm and a toothpick tests clean. Let cool completely in baking pan on a wire rack before slicing. Freeze individual pieces for an easy snack for lunches, enjoy with a cup of afternoon tea or serve as a breakfast cake.
