Banana Coconut Chocolate Chip Cake

This is a cake recipe I picked up from Instagram as it looked super easy to make with very simple ingredients. The best part is that it’s what’s called a one bowl recipe. Meaning no gadgets required. Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl and bake.

About the recipe

This awesomely easy and delicious cake recipe is from Half Baked Harvest. What caught my attention is her video showing her just mixing all the ingredients in a bowl and baking. It was that easy.

The recipe is made with over ripe bananas, honey, eggs, chocolate chips, coconut oil and flour. I changed it a little and added a cup of shredded sweetened coconut and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. What surprised me is how the honey didn’t make the cake dense as I expected. It really turned out great!

The cake is moist and soft with little pieces of chocolate and coconut here and there. Absolutely perfect with a good cup of coffee or tea. Give it a try!

  1. I’m not a fan of coconut but I ❤️ chocolate chip banana bread! The oil probably doesn’t give off a coconut flavor, yes? Or maybe sub canola oil? Happy weekend!

    1. Good question Joji, even I expected the coconut oil to flavor the cake but surprisingly it didn’t have any coconut oil fragrance. BTW, the original recipe does not have shredded coconut so youre good to try it out! Have a good weekend Joji 💕
