hard to believe you can get a cake out of just a few ingredients.
now these cakes are not the average cake texture. they have a unique lightness and chew, plus have a little texture due to the nuts. but we absolutely adore them.
and this time we used walnuts instead of hazelnuts. so a great source of Omega 3!
pure2raw recipe: walnut carob mini cakes (gluten free, grain free, low sugar, dairy free, soy free)
inspired by our carob mini grain free cakes
prep-time: 5 minutes
makes 2-4 mini cakes (we got ours to make 4 small mini cakes, feel free to make it for 2)
- 1/2 cup ground walnuts ( or any nut meal)
- 1/2 cup carob powder ( could do cocoa)
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 4 egg whites
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Place all ingredients into a bowl and stir. Scoop batter into lightly oiled 4 ramekins. Place ramekins into your oven pre-heated to 350 degrees. Bake mini cakes for 30 minutes.
Let cool before removing from ramekins.
*if you want a little sweeter cake add a few drops of liquid stevia or 1 tbsp maple syrup
**we used carob as it helps give them a little more flavor and natural sweetness. you may use cocoa powder and depending what type of cocoa you use the cakes will vary in flavor.
we doubled this recipe as we were traveling so wanted food on hand for our trip down to FL.
and they make for a great dinner, haha, not that we are speaking from experience.
and sorry we have been a little MIA these past few days.
this little one has been stealing our attention.
doesn’t she wear the green mustache so well??
she still loves her green smoothies. and this morning she tried a little of our juice!
we only have a few days with our niece, while home doing wedding things, so we are soaking up every minute with her!!
then we are off to Disney for the Princess Half Marathon with our older sister. anyone running?
have a great Monday!
till next time,
