Why You Need to Reward Yourself With This Coconut Blueberry Cake

Posted by cleanteam

Every once in awhile, I like to give the community recipes for treats that might not fall into the Gut Program or Cleanse Program guidelines. Something to enjoy post-cleanse when you’re still trying to incorporate many of the principles of Clean but might be a bit more lenient on ingredients. This coconut blueberry 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.

These almond flour waffles are fun, celebratory, and are perfect for family brunches, breakfast for dinner, unique desserts, and you can even freeze them to use as needed for snacks on-the-go. They only require a waffle iron (available in many different sizes and prices, I’ve seen them for as little as 20 dollars), and they hold a variety of toppings. You can put the toppings right inside the waffles as we’ve done in the recipe below.
