Ingredients

10 tbsp Almond or peanut butter
1 tsp Apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp Aquafaba
1 ¼ tsp Baking powder
1 ¼ tsp Bicarbonate soda
1 ⅓ cups Brown rice flour
1 ¼ cups Coconut sugar
4 tbsp Dairy free milk
130 g Dark chocolate
1 tsp Freshly brewed espresso coffee
½ cup Lucy Bee cacao
2 tbsp Maple syrup
1 ½ Medium avocado
cup Protein Smoothie Chocolate or Banana
¼ tsp Salt
3 tbsp Tinned coconut milk
1 tsp Vanilla paste
3 Very ripe bananas
Frosting
100 g Chocolate
1 tbsp Coconut oil
1 tbsp Lucy Bee cacao
1 tbsp Maple syrup
1 Medium avocado
1 pinch Salt
1 tsp Vanilla paste

Method

1

Start by lining a loaf tin and preheat the oven to 160C.

2

Blend together the bananas, avocado, nut butter, maple syrup, milk, vanilla, espresso and apple cider vinegar until completely smooth.

3

Next, stir together the dry ingredients – the flour, protein, almonds, coconut sugar, bicarb and baking powder, salt and cacao – until combined.

4

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combined, then stir through the chocolate chips, adding a tablespoon or so of milk to loosen, if needed. Spoon into the prepared loaf tin and place in the oven to bake for around 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until the cake is cooked through and a skewer comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to completely cool.

5

In the meantime, gently melt the chocolate for your frosting in a bain marie with the coconut oil. Place in a blender with the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Spread the frosting over the cooled cake, then cut into slices and serve.
