Gluten Free Coconut Chocolate Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I tried a coconut brownie at my friends house and I really like them.  So, I decided to make my own version of coconut banana brownies.  At first, I made sugar free chocolate banana bars.  However, my kids said they too dry and weren’t sweet enough, so I decided, to soak the bars in a sugar syrup.  The bars were tasty but they were still missing something, so I decided to add a lemon cream cheese frosting.  The final result was to delicious.  Everyone in our family loved the Gluten Free Coconut Chocolate Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.

  1. This sounds yummy. I wonder if honey or coconut sugar would work for the cream cheese frosting? I love to treat myself to a gluten free dessert occasionally… so this is helpful. I just need the energy and time to bake. 😊
