Almond Orange Coconut Snack Cake


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • scant 1/2 cup of vegan sugar (I used brown)
  • Juice from one orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup almonds (whole, chopped, toasted, whatever)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix banana and sugar until smooth. Stir
in orange juice and vanilla extract.

In separate bowl, sift together flour,
baking powder, and salt. Stir in
coconut and almonds.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients
and stir.

Pour batter into a greased 8 x 8 baking
dish, making sure to spread the batter
evenly over the bottom of the dish.

Bake at 350 for 15-17 minutes, or until
light golden brown (and toothpick
inserted in middle comes out clean).

Delicious warm, slices easier when a bit
cooler. Good on day 2, 3…(I have
usually eaten it all by day 3). This is
pleasantly sweet, but it is not SUPER
rich and gourmet dessert-ish. Adjust
sugar to taste accordingly. Also,
although it comes out flatter, like a
brownie, expect the texture to be more
cake-ish than brownie-ish. Yum, just
thinking about it is making me hungry…

Serves: 9

Preparation time: 30 minutes (including baking)
