The BEST Banana Cake

I’m not kidding, this dairy and gluten free cake disappeared so fast off the rack I couldn’t even get a photo of the whole thing.

I added choc chips to the mix and scattered some on top, but if you don’t have them or want to make it 100% refined sugar free leave them out.  This is another super simple throw it all together and bake recipe.  LOVE that!

If you signed up to my REAL food challenge, you will know that I  was able to make 68 dinner meals for just $100.  

With my freezer stocked up with healthy Real food dinner meals, I decided it was time to tackle a major challenge in our house… 


This time I needed plenty of healthy nutritious snacks to feed to my growing kids. 

I took $100 dollars from our grocery budget to how much I could buy from the supermarket, bulk whole food stores and my online health food suppliers. 

For my family, all the ingredients had to be:

  • Wheat free
  • Refined sugar free
  • Dairy free
  • Contain no chemicals, artificial additives or processed food
  • SUPER quick and easy to throw together

I spent the $100 dollars and measured out the ingredients.  Then I got to work on creating all the healthy snacks I could with what I had. 

I created a whopping 101 healthy and delicious snacks for my family!

This worked out to be only .99¢ a serving, which is about the price of a (not so healthy) stick of gum. 

You will LOVE having 15+ quick and easy snack recipes. From the divine ‘Lemon Sunbeam Bars’, to the ‘Honey Oat Cookies’, they are all so easy.  I have even included my favourite sushi recipe, and my “Almond Protein Balls’.  

There is something to please everyone in the family and fill up those lunch-boxes.

I have also attached my shopping list so you can go ahead and recreate all the 17 recipes and make the whole 101 snacks, or just create one recipe at a time. I’m so excited to hear how you go with the recipes, you will LOVE how quickly you can create healthy REAL food snacks.

Enjoy the recipes, 

Happy cooking,

Banana Choc Chip Cookies

Gluten free, dairy free and sweetened with natural honey and ripe bananas.

My son thought these should be called cake cookies, and he’s right because they are half cake and half cookie.  The best of both worlds. 

Sweetened with a little honey and a few chocolate chips, these are divinely good!

Banana Choc Chip Cake-Cookies


2 ripe bananas – mashed

2 cups gluten free flour (I used 1 cup rice flour and 1 cup buckwheat flour)

1/2 cup coconut or olive oil

1 egg – beaten

2 tbsp honey

1/2 cup choc chips plus extra for the tops

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp baking powder


Preheat oven to 180 C.

Beat the egg and mix with the oil and honey.  Add the mashed banana and the flour.  Mix well and then add the flours.  Mix again and pop spoonfuls onto a lined oven tray.  The mixture will be too wet to use your hands, so just use the spoon and press down slightly with a little flour on your fingers.  

They don’t have to be flat because the are going to be a yummy cakey texture.

Top with a few extra choco chips before baking.

Bake for 14-16 minutes until just beginning to turn golden on the tops. 

Cool on a wire rack and enjoy.
