Hi I love this time of year. The lead up to Christmas is fun but very busy. Already the shops are a lot busier. Those of us who have dietary restrictions or those who just want to clean eat. The holiday period can be a difficult time and a healthy diet can be hard to maintain. It’s great to have a few healthy treat recipes that everyone will enjoy. Like this cake. Filled with whole foods and it’s also gluten and dairy free. Would suit those on a gluten-free diet or paleo diet.
2 cups almond meal
1/3 cup coconut Flour
1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
1/2 cup brown sugar/or rapadura sugar
