thank you thank you thank you!!! again we are always blown away by the support and kind words about our pictures and skin issues the other day. we appreciate everyone’s tips on what worked for them, we will look into some of your suggestions! thanks again! we will continue our face care posts on Monday, as we did not want to overload too much on face issues all in row.
in the mean time we wanted to share something that we enjoyed earlier this week. a super easy gluten free hazelnut carob individual cakes. and it is grain free too!
this recipe is a remake recipe that we have made before and loved. though this time we did some hazelnut flour in there. basically we had whole hazelnuts on hand and ground them into flour in vita-mix blender.
these hazelnut carob cakes make two individual cakes. perfect for a little mid-afternoon snack, that is when we enjoyed it but really could be enjoyed anytime of the day! even for breakfast.
pure2raw recipe: gluten and grain free individual hazelnut carob cakes
prep-time: 5 minutes
bake-time: 30-35 minutes
- 3 tablespoons hazelnut flour (hazelnut meal- ground up hazelnuts)
- 5 tablespoons carob
- 2 whole eggs
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup sweet potato puree (or pumpkin or applesauce)
Place your hazelnut flour and carob into a bowl. Next add in your eggs, sweet potato puree, and apple cider vinegar.
Stir till combined. Lightly oil your ramekins and spoon the batter into the ramekins.
Placed in a 350 degree oven. Bake for about 30- 35 minutes. To tell when these cakes are done – the sides will start to pull away from the ramekin and light to touch.
**note: if you use muffin pan I would just fill up two muffins liners.
Let cool for a few minutes and pop out of ramekin.
Or you can do what we did and eat straight from the ramekin!!
A warm, yummy, delightful cake made just for you!
we loved the extra crunch the hazelnuts gave the cake too. any nut could be used in this recipe as well as cocoa instead of carob. for those looking to make it vegan, not really sure what would work the best, maybe flax or chia gel. looks like we will need to experiment too!
we forgot how quick and simple this cake recipe is, which can be a good and bad thing as now we know we can whip up individual cakes for us in no time. haha but we mostly love that it calls for just 5 ingredients!!!! okay so might not be your average store bought cake, but we will take these grain-free mini cakes anytime.
