BANANA BROWNIE CAKE (VEGAN)
-3/4 cup white whole wheat flour (King Arthur's Flour is my favorite brand)
-3/4 cup carob powder OR cocoa powder
-3/4 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 1/4 cup mashed bananas (I used 2 large bananas + 1 small banana)
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/4 cup canola oil
-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-2 small bananas, sliced into coins
Preheat oven to 350F, and lightly grease an 8" springform pan with oil.
Combine all of the dry ingredients with a whisk in a medium bowl. In a separate, larger bowl, combine the wet ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingrtedients a little at a time, mixing well after each addition. Spread the batter into the prepared springform pan with a spatula. Place the sliced banana coins on top of the batter in any configuration you wish. Lightly press each slice into the batter.
Bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Cool on a cooling rack, remove from springform pan, and serve.
