And here goes our bat again with her fruit mania again! However, that is not the only fun fact about this cake, here we used oats instead of flour, making it way more healthy than a normal cake! Oats are far more nutritional than normal flour and have way fewer carbohydrates! However, flour does have more protein but we’re adding the nuts in there so we still have our lovely share of protein! Don’t you love it when you are eating dessert and actually eating something that is good for your health? Well, if you do, go ahead and treat yourself to this delicious recipe!
- Baking Powder
- Goji Berries
First, we start by turning our oats into flour by simply blending them to dust (I like to add the baking powder in this step). The same procedure is then repeated with the almonds, however, we can be less thorough with them and leave some larger pieces to find that little crunch when we nibble (makes the cake more interesting in my opinion). Next, we blend the apple, milk, honey, and egg into a nice paste, this will replace both the butter and sugar in this recipe. I did give the dried goji berries a little pulse blend too, just to realize more of their sugars and juices into the mixture. Add a few lemon drops and a couple of lemon zest shaving, some cinnamon to taste, and blend everything together just like you do for a normal cake.
Place in a baking tray, leave for a few minutes to rest, and bake. I love this cake for a delicious and nutritious breakfast with some cinnamon flavored drink!
You can serve with some walnuts on the side, you can even replace the almonds in the mixture with walnuts or mix and match. Walnuts blend in really nicely with the apples. You can skip the honey in the mixture and drizzle the top when you’re going to consume it. This will actually preserve more nutrients as the honey will not be cooked, however, it is a little more inconvenient. If you don’t have any goji berries or don’t like them, raisins are also great, (however, I wouldn’t skip them altogether, they do help with the sweetness, but then again, you can simply add more honey). Pears can replace apples so that’s another variation you could try. Hope you give this cake a chance, it’s not hard to make, you don’t need to be too precise with the ingredients, it’s great-tasting and great for your health! So do let us know your experiences with it, we’d love to hear about all of them!
