I am re-posting this recipe because l have many new followers and wanted to share this wonderful recipe again with everyone. The mix of coconut, cinnamon and apple is really enticing and satisfying. Since l have adopted the Paleo diet this cake has become one of my favourite snacks.


2 green apples, 2 cups almond meal, 1/4 cup coconut flour , 6 free range eggs, 1/4 cup organic coconut oil, 1/4 cup raw organic honey, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda (Bob’s Red Mill Aluminium free ).


Chop up the apples into small pieces. I leave the skin on because of the additional fibre and nutrients. Place in a saucepan with the organic coconut oil and cinnamon. Bring to the boil then simmer until the apples are soft. The smell in your kitchen will be amazing. Beat eggs and honey then add dry ingredients. Add contents of the saucepan and mix together. Place mixture in a greased and lined loaf tin and bake in a 170 degree celsius oven for approximately 40 minutes. Cool on cake rack. Yum! You can also use square tins as the picture above shows. The cake on the right is darker because l let the cinnamon and apple mix cook a bit longer than for the cake on the left. 


When cool l slice this cake into single portions, wrap in glad wrap and freeze. When l am working and pack a lunch l just pop a piece into my lunchbox. Now my husband has realised how delicious it is l make double batches every few weeks to keep up the supply.
