Good Morning, Good Evening, good whatever you’re up to!
I hope you are hungry…, and, I hope you’re interested in something a bit different than anything you can buy in the bakery.
This post is all due to some amazing couple who my wife and I met yesterday.
You see, it is not too often that we go out on Saturday morning and run into a stand at the local farmers market where there are pastry/sweet type of things that are “legal” for me to eat. And by “legal” I’m talking about foods that don’t have any grains, no refined sugars, and no other illegal SCD type of foods inside.
But, this couple was selling some small cake/pastries that worked, and man were they good.
So, with a big thanks to my wife Miša, we bought some of the super fine coconut flour they were also selling, and today we made our own creating that is even better than what we tasted yesterday.
Here is the recipe for you. But promise me one thing, you need to make sure to ONLY TRY a small amount of this incredible cake if you have not had any nut flour before, or in a long time. Also, please realize that my UC symptoms are not active right now, and that I would not try this if I was in the middle of a flare up. AND, most importantly, please realize that since I have not been having any nut flour for a long time, (I went WAY overboard on almond flours and other nut flours several times before which can land even the best of us back with UC symptoms) I have only had two small pieces since this came out of the oven a few hours ago, and won’t be having anymore until sometime tomorrow afternoon…gonna restrain and respect the nuts of the world to get my body adjusted SLOWLY.
Here is the recipe that is fully grain free, refined sugar free, milk/dairy free, and DARN TASTY!
We are Calling it TNF CAKE, which stands for (The Nut Flour) NOT Tumor Necrosis Factor…:)
TNF Recipe and Instructions:
- 4 Large Eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 2 Tablespoons of honey
- 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 1 Cup of applesauce (find one that has ONLY apples in it, no added sugar is a MUST)
- 1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil
- 1/2 cup of coconut flour
- 1/4-1/2 cup of a mix of hazelnuts, cashews, and almonds (you can skip the nuts if you like, we didn’t)
STEP ONE: Go and turn on your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, or 200 Celsius.
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
