This chocolate potato cake is one of the lightest gluten free cakes we’ve tried. It has a fluffy, crumbly texture and a mild chocolate flavour. You’d never guess that the recipe uses mashed potatoes!This is a conversion of a recipe that I came across in our local paper. (I also halved the recipe which explains some of the odd measurements.) The caption in the paper says that the potatoes boost nutrition, but I’m not so sure about that!
Inspired by our trip to Maui, Geoff and I decided to try to make something that would bring together some tropical island flavours. Made with Tahitian vanilla, shredded and ground coconut, and chunks of fresh pineapple, these Pina Colada Muffins certainly do the trick. On top of all that, the almond flour base makes them hearty and the applesauce keeps them moist for days. We will certainly be making these again! These are based on the almond flour raspberry muffins we posted earlier. Like those muffins, these should be stored in the fridge and taste even better the next day when the flavours have a chance to meld.
These muffins are like a light & fluffy bowl of oatmeal! Make them on the weekend and enjoy them warm from the oven, and then keep the rest in the freezer for a quick on-the-go meal. They are hearty and wholesome and the coconut flour and fruit filling keep them super moist.
Oats lower cholesterol, are an excellent source of plant protein, and good source of iron. However, not everyone who has celiac disease can tolerate oats, even when the oats are gluten free. If you have questions, talk to your physician or dietitian.
A great late-summer or early-fall recipe. The coconut flour and the shredded apple keep these muffins moist and the crumble gives them a sweet crunchy topping that’s hard to resist.
