When I had this for the first time last week I nearly fell over with excitement. The ingredients are easy, the preparation is simple, and the taste is out of this world! Not only will it satisfy your sweet cravings, it will keep you full for hours! Inspired by: Averie’s blueberry banana oat cakes
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • ½ cup quinoa flakes
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar [optional – it’s great without it!]
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • handful of raisins
  • handful of coconut [optional]
Optional toppings
  • cocoalmond mania butter [recipe below], raisins, coconut, granola, carob chips, maple syrup, yacon syrup…
  1. Prepare a 16oz. microwave/oven safe dish by oiling with a dab of coconut oil. Set aside. Drop all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until fully incorporated. Press mixture into prepare dish and even out with fork.
  2. Microwave option: Place in the microwave and cook for 3½ 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 chocolate Frisbee!
  3. Oven option: Place in a preheated oven at 350F and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  4. Allow to rest for 1 minute before tipping over onto a plate and smothering with your favorite toppings.
