Banana-Almond Cake


PWR FOODS: This is one of my favorite desserts. It’s gluten-free and packed with protein and potassium. It’s rich but with minimum guilt – sweetened with agave nectar versus white sugar. You can make your own almond flour in a heavy-duty blender or food processor. Try it out:


3 cups almond flour
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup melted butter (or butter substitute)
1/2 cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 mashed bananas (extra-ripe)

Mix all ingredients. Pour into a buttered baking pan (I use olive oil PAM). Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) until top springs back when touched – about 40 minutes. I sometimes top it with a scoop of really thick banana smoothie to serve as ice cream. That’s simple to make as well – one frozen banana, 1/2 cup rice milk, dash of cinnamon and vanilla extract.
