Vegan Chocolate Chip Protein Banana Cake

Vegan Chocolate Chip Protein Banana Cake is the only cake you need to make this week! if you’re looking for a protein-packed vegan and gluten-free dessert, this is it.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Protein Banana Cake is so fudgy and absolutely scrumptious.

while it is a decadent cake, the ingredients are pretty wholesome!

for chocolate chips, i used lakanto, but you can use any kind you want.

if you want to keep this cake a little more on the healthier side, just choose some with little or even no sugar.

you’re going to need some vanilla protein powder since this is a protein cake after all!

i love truvani vanilla protein, but any kind will work as long as you stick to 33g per scoop.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Protein Banana Cake also calls for oat flour, which is definitely my favorite flour to bake with.

the cake itself is perfect without any frosting or melted chocolate, but who wouldn’t want some of that on top?!

if you don’t want to use melted chocolate, frosting would be delicious, and so would some yogurt or cream cheese.

besides the taste and texture being perfect, this cake has even more amazing components.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Protein Banana Cake is made in a food processor, so it’s very easy to put together within minutes. there’s no mixing or stirring!

here’s everything you need to make Vegan Chocolate Chip Protein Banana Cake

vanilla protein powder

gluten free oat flour

baking powder

mashed overripe bananas

creamy df yogurt (used siggi’s plant based plain unsweetened)

maple syrup

vanilla extract

cashew butter

chocolate chips

if you don’t want to use banana or can’t have them, you could try pumpkin puree as a sub!

sweet potato would also probably work well, the cake just won’t be quite as sweet.

however, you could make up for that though by using chocolate chips with a little bit more sweetness.

  1. So good and so easy! I love a nice dense cake and this was perfect! I couldn’t stop eating it!

  2. Your recipes look awesome. Can I use almond flour and place of oat flour and can I use a coconut yogurt instead of dairy yogurt or what are you referring to as far as dairy free yogurt?
