I asked my followers on Facebook a couple of weeks ago what quinoa flake bake flavor I should come up with next.
Although there was a strong following for carrot cake at first, snickerdoodle ended up sliding into first base.
A couple of tries later and I successfully landed on a cake that was perfectly sweet, dense, but not too hard, and resembled a cookie. Booya!
Then I made it for myself 6 additional times just to be sure.
It’s all about quality control, folks.
Snickerdoodle Quinoa Flake Bake
Gluten free, Dairy free, Refined sugar free, Yeast free, Corn free
A snickerdoodle inspired breakfast cake that’s high in protein and fiber. Best enjoyed with a hot cup of tea and topped with crushed flax and blueberries.
Inspired by my Quinoa Flake Bakes
Yield: 1 serving
- 1/4 cup quinoa flakes
- 1 tbsp + 2 tsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp coconut/palm sugar
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp Himalayan rock salt
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1 tbsp non-dairy milk
- 1 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Topping: 1 tsp coconut/palm sugar + 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Prepare a 16oz. microwave/oven safe dish by oiling with a dab of coconut oil. Set aside. Drop all ingredients except cinnamon sugar topping in a small bowl and mix until fully incorporated. Press mixture into prepare dish and even out with fork. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over top.
Microwave option: Place in the microwave and cook on level 6 power for 3-4 minutes. You’ll know when it’s done when it rises slightly, is harder to the touch, and pulls away from the sides of the dish. Don’t bake it too long, or you’ll have a Frisbee!
Oven option: Place in a preheated oven at 350F and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Allow to rest for 1 minute before tipping over onto a plate and smothering with your favorite toppings.
The sprinkled flax you’re seeing is crushed flax from Omega Crunch. They naturally separate the shell from the germ of the flax seed making the omega-3 oils readily available. Whereas when you eat whole flax seed, there’s not much omega-3 absorption going on. This is unless the flax seed is ground, but who can snack on a bowl of ground flax seed? blah
Their product is so good you can eat it straight out of the container, something I do every night before bed.
I just ordered a 2kg tub of their maple flax last week and can’t wait for it to arrive. $10 says it’ll be gone in less than a month.
Another product I have to chat about are Goody’s new(ish) spin pins. Have you tried them?
I have really layered hair so there are a couple of pieces that just don’t fit into a bun naturally, but holy moly does this product work! I managed to keep this bun in my hair all day long and it didn’t budge.
Spin pins and my bumpit – you may laugh, but I love that darn thing – make my morning hair routine a 2 minute event.
