If you scroll through Instagram there is a very good chance you have seen a few coffee cakes as of late. They have been peppering my feed for a while now so when I saw 3 beautiful ripe bananas sitting on my counter I just knew what had to be done.
Bananas as we all know are sweet and the riper the banana the sweeter the fruit. I was tempted to not add any sweetener but caved and decided to add monk-fruit sweetener in the end. Monk-fruit is very sweet (in my opinion) so I tend to go easy when adding it to my desserts or in this case snack cake. They say to treat monk-fruit like sugar and use it 1-1 but in my experience I have found that far too sweet.
The wonderful thing about using this monk-fruit is that it is sugar free. Great for people watching their sugar intake. The topper for my snack cake does have coconut sugar which is lower on the glycemic level than brown sugar. You can always substitute your sweeteners to suit your personal preference .
