Every once in awhile, I like to give the community a recipe that might not fall into the Gut or Cleanse guidelines; a treat. Something to enjoy post cleanse when you're still trying to incorporate many of the principle of Clean but might be a bit more lenient on ingredients. This cake, which I discovered on one of my favourite food and photography blogs, Roost, contains eggs (lots of them!) but even for those who may have a sensitivity to eggs, like myself, I find that when they're in something baked, they're fine. And of course, as we've mentioned before, the higher quality (pastured, local) eggs you use, the better they are for you. The large number of eggs is why the fiber rich coconut flour works so well here.
This is a great way to enjoy the abundance of summer stone fruit and berries. The protein and healthy fats in the almonds and coconut (as well as the cinnamon) help keep blood sugar levels stable, but berries and stone fruit are generally lower in sugar than other fruit anyway. This is a perfect summer dessert, a delicious part of your cleanse lunch, and will be a hit at dinner parties, birthday parties, or as a post-cleanse breakfast. Enjoy!
