Rich chocolate cake stuffed with bananas + smothered in fresh cherries and coconut whipped cream = Chocolate Cake Banana Splits! Vegan, oil-free, sugar-free.


  • 1 1/2 cups GF flour blend
  • 2 tsp. powdered stevia
  • 1/2 cup Xyla
  • 1 Tbsp. Dandy Blend or Cafix, optional
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa (I recommend King Arthur Flour’s Double Dutch Dark Cocoa)
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 2 Tbsp. flaxseed meal + 3 Tbsp. water (whisk together and let sit for a few minutes)
  • 1 1/3 cup nut milk
  • 6 ounces unsweetened plain non-dairy yogurt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Bananas (about 1/2 per person), cut into rounds or sliced in half lengthwise
  • Fresh cherries (about 6 per person), pitted
  • Roasted, unsalted peanuts, chopped
  • Coconut whipped cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 350-degrees F and lightly spray pan with oil. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, stevia, Xyla, Dandy Blend (if using), cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum. In a large bowl, combine the flaxseed meal mixture, nut milk, yogurt, and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix thoroughly. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 40-45 minutes, testing the center with a toothpick to make sure cake is baked all the way through. Let cool in the pan for a few minutes, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. To serve, cut about 3/4 of the way through the domed part of each of the 10 “pieces” (creating a place to put the banana) – then separate them into individual buns (cut down through the deep crevice part of the cake). Divide banana slices among buns, drizzle with coconut cream and top with cherries and peanuts.
