When Sweet Met Salty

Bangin’ Banana Bread Cake with Avocado Frosting

It may not be a better than sex cake, nor as rich as the infamous slutty brownies…but they come pretty darn close. The sweetness from the bananas mixed in with the decadent chocolate chunks and hints of cinnamon yields a moist, yes I said moist texture and is packed with what some would consider orgasmic natural flavors.

The intensity of that flavor though will of course depend on your experience so please don’t make this an expectation when you make these.

To make this you’ll want to have a large food processor on deck along with a thin spatula. The thinner the spatula the better as it will make scraping out the dough easier.

When it comes to the avocado frosting you’ll want to also have a small blender on hand as well. You can attempt (key word attempt) to use the food processor after you clean it but I wouldn’t recommend it as the food processor will be too big and make it hard to combine all of the ingredients

Please note I cannot take credit for this idea as I pondered across the idea for this recipe from the web. This Avocado Frosting is adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie’s Chocolate Avocado Frosting, which tastes amazing on it’s own, put personally I thought it could use a bit of protein as well as a little less fructose, hence the truvia.

Luckily, the Avocado Frosting is made with only these ingredients

  • Ripe medium avocado
  • Honey
  • Cocoa powder
  • Whey protein powder (any flavor you like)
  • A few dashes of truvia
  • Vanilla extract

The texture that’s created with just these ingredients is astonishing! Within only a few seconds it transforms into what appears to be fluffy frosting you would see at a bakery.

I highly recommend tailoring this frosting to your personal pallet. I’m aware cocoa may not be a part of everyone’s color pallet, which is why I invite you to add in powdered peanut butter, or any other type of powder or liquid that can give you a non-cocoa flavor if that’s within your color/flavor wheel.

Alrighty, lets get those tastebuds grooving and get that blender moving!

Instructions
Banana Bread Base
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray.
  2. Using a cutting board mash the bananas and add them into the food processor.
  3. Melt the yogurt butter and peanut butter together a microwave-safe dish for 20-30 seconds. Add it to the food processor along with the truvia, butter, non-dairy milk, vanilla extract, and eggs.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients into the food processor, except for the chocolate chips/chunks. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Scrape down the sides and then blend again for 20 seconds.
  5. Add in the chocolate chunks and blend for 20-30 seconds, or until the chunks are broken up into smaller chunks evenly
  6. Evenly distribute the batter into the 8x8 pan and bake for 35-40 minutes. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before adding the frosting.
Avocado Frosting
  1. Add all ingredients into a small blender. If the mixture is too thick add more non-dairy milk to the frosting.
  2. Scrape down the blender until all the contents are out. You can choose to pipe this frosting by using a ziplock bag and cutting a whole in the corner or lathering the banana bread with the frosting from the banana. Please note I used only about 3/4 the amount of avocado frosting so you can feel free to use the whole amount if you would like but it will affect the nutritional info as I accounted for the 3/4 usage and 9 slices I made.
