Apple Spice Cake

Being prepared and having healthy snacks ready and waiting is the best way to be able to avoid reaching for those unhealthy treats that are not going to do you any good. This cake freezes really well so you can portion it up and have it ready for the kids to take to school.


1 red apple, grated
¼ cup coconut oil
5 large eggs
1/3 cup coconut flour, sifted
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¾ teaspoon bi-carb soda
50g honey
1 tablespoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground ginger


Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees. Prepare loaf tin with lined baking paper.

Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until all ingredients are well incorporated.

Pour mixture into the pan and bake for 45-60 minutes depending on your oven. The cake is ready when you place a skewer through the middle and it comes out clean.

Once cake is ready, gently remove the cake from the tin and allow it to cool on a wired rack.

This cake freezes really well therefore is great to have ready and waiting to include in your lunchboxes. I will take it out the night before to thaw out on the bench.
