Ingredients

Cake:

  • coconut oil no-stick cooking spray

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup dark brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

  • ¼ cup cane sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons ground allspice

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 cup mashed banana

Vanilla Glaze:

  • ¾ cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cashew milk, or more as needed

  • ½ teaspoon coconut oil, melted

  • teaspoon vanilla extract

  • teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®) with cooking spray.

  2. Mix whole wheat flour, Greek yogurt, all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

  3. Combine brown sugar, eggs, butter, cane sugar, vanilla extract, allspice, and nutmeg in a large bowl; mix until well blended. Stir in flour mixture. Fold in mashed banana and shredded coconut until evenly combined. Spoon batter into the prepared pan.

  4. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Remove from oven; turn over onto a wire rack to cool, about 30 minutes.

  5. Combine confectioners' sugar, cashew milk, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl; stir until mixture is creamy. Drizzle over cooled cake.
