Peanut Butter Banana Cake (FM)

 | Breakfast, Desserts, FM, Nutrition, Snacks  | 6 Comments


*Yields 9 portions. This cake is pretty dense. I had one one of these squares and it kept me full for hours.


2 cups almond flour

3 tsp baking powder

1 ripe banana

2 chia eggs (2 tbsp ground chia seeds mixed with 6 tbsp water)

1 cup Swerve Sweetener (granulated)

1 cup almond milk

1 cup peanut butter

pinch of salt



  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Add all the ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth.
  3. Grease a 9×9 inch square cake pan. Pour the batter into the cake pan and create an even layer.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes until golden brown on top and cooked through (if a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean it’s done).
  5. Let the cake cool down for an hour and then cut into 9 even size squares. Garnish with sugar free jam and a banana slices.

    Made this for breakfast this morning. I didn’t have chia seeds so I used 2 real eggs. Came out great! Whole family liked it and my 4yr old asked for more later. But I had a question for @zuzkalight : Is there something I can substitute for the erithrytol that will still be low-carb? It was too overpoweringly sweet, in a way that I don’t really care for; I’m currently dealing with some gastritis issues and I’m finding that I’m having a hard time digesting things with erithrytol in them. Other than that, this was a great recipe!

      Hi Aleta, I don’t know if this help but if I am using Swerve I take like 1/4 of what is in the recipe 😉

        Hi @Zuzana1982! Thanks for the response. I’m not sure I understand what you mean, though. Do you only use 1/4 of what the recipe calls for, or do you only eat 1/4 of the serving size? I can’t find Swerve for sale anywhere in my city. Our natural grocers don’t carry it. But they do have a granulated erithrytol, and so that is what I’ve been using. I was wondering if Stevia might be easier to digest. Also thought that next time I try this recipe, I’ll add a couple tablespoons of cocoa powder and make chocolate peanut butter banana bars. 😋

          I use only 1/4 of what the recipe calls for 😉 as I don’t have the original swerve as well and the recipes are too sweet for me. Great idea of adding cocoa powder ;-)) I am drooling right now!!!!

    Hi from UK Z, and other Warriorz!!
    Hope you had a lovely weekend Z, and that Jesse, Cat and Dogs are good 🙂

    I just have a question about Swerve sweetener –

    The sweetener is really tricky to get hold of here in the UK, but from other video’s/ recipies I understand that I can also use Erythritol – I am just a bit unsure of how much to use, and was wondering if you could advise?
    With Swerve, I believe you can use it just like you would sugar – In a recipe instead of a cup of sugar, you use a cup of swerve – Is this the same for Erythritol do you know, or is Erythritol sweeter so should you use less/ more ? Should you mix it with like liquid stevia or something?
    I’m new to sweeteners and sugar free, and just a bit… confused.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read my comment
