What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cup mashed, ripe bananas (4 to 5 bananas)
  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a paper towel, lightly coat Bundt pan with coconut oil. 
     
  2. In a medium bowl, combine walnuts, chocolate chips, brown sugar, and cinnamon; mix well and set aside.
     
  3. In a large bowl, combine buttermilk, coconut oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla; using a whisk, mix until well blended. Stir in bananas; mix well. Whisk remaining ingredients into banana mixture until well combined.
     
  4. Spoon 1/3 of the cake batter into Bundt pan and sprinkle with half the walnut mixture. Spoon another 1/3 of the cake batter into pan, and sprinkle with remaining walnut mixture. Cover with remaining cake batter.
     
  5. Bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. Let cool 10 to 15 minutes, then invert onto serving platter; cool completely then top with Chocolate Glaze (see Note).
     

Chocolate Glaze

In a microwaveable bowl, melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until chocolate is melted. Stir in 1 tablespoon coconut oil then allow glaze to cool and thicken slightly. Pour over top of cooled cake, allowing glaze to drip down sides. Allow to set before serving.

 

Note:

To melt the coconut oil, place it in a measuring cup and microwave it in 15 second intervals until it's pourable.
