Ingredients
For the Banana Gingerbread Cake:
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups overripe bananas 3 large or 4 small bananas
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup butter or oil*
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
For the Icing:
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp meringue powder optional, to give your icing a little protein "boost"
  • 1/2-1 tsp water or almond milk depending on the desired thickness of your frosting
Instructions
  1. Mash the bananas and put them in a saucepan. Bring them to boil, stirring once in a while and let them boil for a few minutes. This step is optional, but boiling the bananas down intensifies their flavor and reduces the moisture. Add the sticky molasses and the butter to the bananas while they're still hot.
  2. While the banana mixture is cooling down preheat your oven to 350F and line a brownie pan (or a quick bread pan if you like) with some parchment paper.
  3. Put the egg whites, maple syrup and vanilla extract in the blender. Add the banana, molasses and butter mixture and blend until incorporated. Add the spices and the flour. Blend some more until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture in the pan and bake for about 40 minutes (depending on your oven) until the toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Enjoy!
