Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl beat the oil, sugar, and eggs until thoroughly combined and fluffy.
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, being careful not to over-mix.
  • Using the same bowl you used for the flour mixture, mash your bananas until smooth. Add the carrots, yogurt, milk, vanilla and hemp hearts, and whisk until well combined.
  • Add banana mixture to the large bowl with the flour mixture and using a spatula mix until evenly incorporated. Pour batter equally into two greased loaf pans. Then bake for about 40-45 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cakes cool completely before adding the frosting!
