Paleo Chocolate Pecan Banana Protein Cake

Tired of the same ole banana cake?  Me too.  So using my basic recipe, I just added some ingredients to create this decadent Paleo Dessert!

Ingredients Cake:
Almond Flour 2 cups
Chocolate Protein Powder 1/2 cup
Cocoa Powder 1/2 cup
Pecans 1/2 cup chopped
Coconut Milk 1/2 cup
Agave/Honey/Maple 1/4 cup
Applesauce 1/4 cup
Water 1/4 cup
Coconut Oil 1/4 cup melted
Bananas 2 large ripe
Eggs 2 large
Vanilla 1 teaspoon
Baking Powder 1 teaspoon
Sea Salt 1/2 teaspoon 

Pulse all ingredients in a food processor until smooth batter forms.  Pour into pan greased with more coconut oil and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  I used a bundt pan but if using a loaf pan you may need to increase baking time slightly.

Ingredients Nut Butter Frosting:
Nut Butter 1 cup (used half Sunbutter and half Almond butter)
Coconut Oil 1/2 cup organic
Agave/Honey/Maple 1/2 cup
Vanilla 1 tablespoon 
Sea Salt 1/4 teaspoon (or this would be a great time to use the ever useful Vanilla Expresso Sea Salt from my previous blog post)
More Pecans for on top!

Pulse all ingredients in processor until light and fluffy.  Spread on completely cooked cake then top with more Pecans.
