Who says you can’t be vegan and enjoy your cake and eat it, too? This vegan peanut butter banana cake is so simple, and turns out perfect every time, no butter or eggs required. Peanut butter and banana is one of my favourite food combos which is why I love this recipe so much!
I think a healthy lifestyle is all about balance rather than deprivation. So yes, while there is some sugar and oil, this cake is still lower fat and refined sugar than most others. The banana definitely helps to provide a natural sweetness and to cut back on the sugar.
This vegan peanut butter banana cake is packed dried fruits and nuts; I added dates, figs and walnuts, but raisins and flaked almonds would also be really nice, too. The saltiness in the peanut butter balances the sweetness of the icing sugar which makes this cake absolutely divine!
