 Ingredients List

  • 80g solidified coconut oil
  • 40g (1/4 cup) coconut sugar
  • 1 small lemon, rind finely grated, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 35g (1/4 cup) coconut flour
  • 2 small bananas
  • 85g (3/4 cup) almond meal
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot (tapioca flour)
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) light coconut milk
  • 75g (1/2 cup) frozen blueberries, thawed on paper towel
  • Rice malt syrup, to drizzle (optional)


Step 1
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Grease base and side of a 19.5cm (base measurement) springform cake pan and line with baking paper.
Step 2
Use electric beaters to beat the coconut oil, sugar, lemon rind and vanilla in a bowl until pale and creamy. Beat in 1 egg and 1 tbs of the coconut flour. Repeat with the remaining eggs and coconut flour until combined (mixture may curdle slightly).
Step 3
Thinly slice half a banana. Drizzle with a little lemon juice to prevent discolouration. Set aside. Use a fork to mash the remaining banana.
Step 4
Add the almond meal, arrowroot, baking powder, coconut milk, mashed banana and 1 tbs lemon juice to coconut oil mixture. Stir until combined. Spoon into prepared pan and smooth the surface. Sprinkle with blueberries. Top with sliced banana. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Step 5
Drizzle with rice malt syrup, if using.
