Yes. I just used the word “healthy” to describe cake, and if you don’t believe me, read on.

This cake is whole wheat– it’s made with whole-wheat pastry flour and wheat germ, both of which are great for you. Even better, there is no added fat in here. The moisture comes from those amazing bananas which are one of the healthiest fruits you can possibly eat, and from some almond milk.

The bananas also contribute a lot of the sweetness, and I used some maple syrup because I love it and because it adds even more flavor to an already delicious cake.

Healthy Banana-Walnut Bundt Cake [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Oil Free / Low Fat Vegan


  • 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 6 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar (use turbinado or vegan cane sugar)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts, toasted lightly, then chopped


  1. Mix the flour, wheat germ, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
  2. In another, larger bowl, whisk together the sugar, maple syrup, almond milk, mashed bananas and vanilla extract until well-mixed.
  3. Add the flour in three batches, stirring in the flour thoroughly after each addition.
  4. Pour into a bundt pan sprayed with oil (I just bought a silicone bundt pan which requires little to no oil, and the cake pops out beautifully without sticking). This is a thick batter, so smooth down the top before putting into the oven.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the cake’s center comes out clean.
  6. Cool thoroughly, unmold, dust with some confectioner’s sugar if you like, then slice. Serve with some vegan whipped cream for some extra oomph, or just plain– it’s delicious either way.
