Blueberry Almond Bundt Cake

Blueberry Almond Bundt Cake

I’m not one to push things on people but consider this your push.

BIG ‘ole PUSH

I had a craving for blueberry coffee cake and somehow it turned into this beautiful masterpiece. I am not one bit mad about it.

Because I’m a people pleaser, I tested this recipe out in an 8×8 and it turned out perfectly! I just like to be fancy… while rocking my sweatpants and peanut butter stained sweatshirts. You get what you get mmk?

This recipe is made with super simple and CLEAN ingredients which is what I’m ALWAYS about but especially now that I’m expecting (if you don’t know, now you know. Read this!) It’s made with a blend of gluten-free and almond flour which makes it fluffy and moist. The full fat coconut milk can be swapped but I wouldn’t recommend it because it makes the cake SO decadent. And by decadent… I mean STRAIGHT drool worthy. I used coconut sugar but you can use raw cane sugar if you please!

The only thing I haven’t tried is swapping the eggs for flax eggs. If you try it, let me know how it goes!

For the people that want to be fancy without much effort!

Author Kelly

Ingredients

  • 2 room temp Whole Eggs
  • 3 tbsp Coconut Oil melted
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • 1 cup Full Fat Coconut Milk room temp
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Almond Extract NOT OPTIONAL!
  • 1 1/2 cup GF Baking Flour
  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon divided
  • 1 1/2 cup Frozen Blueberry

Almond Glaze

  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar see notes*
  • 1/4 cup Full Fat Coconut Milk
  • 1/8 tsp Almond Extract
  • Slivered Almonds to top

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a bundt cake pan or 8×8 with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. With a standing mixer, whisk together the eggs, coconut oil and coconut sugar.

  3. Add in the rest of the wet ingredients and whisk until combined. About 30 seconds.

  4. The dry ingredients go in next. Add the GF flour through cinnamon, using only HALF the cinnamon (1/2 tbsp). Whisk until just combined. 

  5. In a small bowl, add the blueberries and the other half of the cinnamon (1/2 tbsp). Stir until the blueberries are coated before adding them into the mixture. Whisk once or twice until the blueberries are incorporated.

  6. Pour the batter into your prepared baking dish and bake for about 60 minutes (bundt cake) or 45 minutes for the 8×8. Make sure to check with a toothpick! It will seem done on the outside well before it’s done on the inside.

  7. Let cool completely in its baking dish before placing it onto it’s serving dish and glazing.

Glaze

  1. Whisk all the ingredients together until smooth (except the almonds). Pour the glaze over the cake before topping with a whole lot of almonds.

Vegan Samoa Truffles

Vegan Samoa Truffles

These no bake truffles are the perfect little bite and they taste exactly like those delicious little cookies you can only get once a year. Who needs Girl Scouts cookies anyway?

Me… I need them. It’s fine. I’ll survive but ONLY because I have this recipe in my tool box.

But when I can’t have them, I make these and these completely fit the bill! Like I said, no-bake goodies are the way to go. They come together with practically no ingredients at all and the best part?? ALL the measurements are in 1/2 or 1 increments. No weird 2/3 cup + 1 tbsp situations up in here. Simply 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1/2 cup or 1 cup. BOOM DONE.

If you’re anything like me, you might be running on about negative brain cells from all the holiday celebrations. In just a few short days, we will be celebrating again for New Years which mean the brain cells that we have left might disappear as well. Do yourself a favor and take the thinking out of you New Years party treat! The hardest part is waiting for all the chocolate to set. Everything else can be done in minutes!

Vegan Samoa Truffles

The perfect little party treat for people that like things as easy as 1,2,3!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Desicated Coconut
  • 1 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Cashew Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Date Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 cup Dairy-Free Chocolate
  • 4-5 Medjool Dates *optional- see notes
  • 1/4 cup Flaked Coconut *optional

Instructions

  1. Before you get started, grab a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Set aside.

    In a medium sauce pan over low heat, toast the coconut until it just turns golden. It happens quick! About 2-3 minutes. 

  2. While the coconut is toasting, place the coconut flour and salt in a medium-large bowl and set aside. 

  3. Once the coconut is done toasting, remove the pan from the stove and replace it with a small sauce pan. Add the coconut oil, date syrup and cashew butter. Whisk over medium low heat until they are all combined. About 2 minutes. 

  4. Pour the wet mixture over the coconut flour and salt. Stir to combine. 

  5. Grab your parchment paper lined baking sheet. It’s not time to form the truffles! The mixture will still be warm so be careful. Take a 1 tsp measuring spoon and scoop out 30-40 truffles placing them on the baking sheet after rolling them in your hands slightly. Place them in the freezer to completely cool down. About 20-30 minutes.

  6. Once the truffles are cooled, it’s time to heat up the chocolate. In a small bowl, add the chips or chopped up chocolate (I added a tbsp of coconut oil as well to make it silky). Heat the chocolate in 30 second increments until it is fully melted, making sure to stir in between. Mine took about a minute.

  7. Add a couple truffles to the bowl, turning them around with a fork until they are fully covered. Lift each truffle up with the fork and tap the fork on the bowl to get the excess chocolate off. Place it on the parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat 5 million times.

  8. Place the truffles back into the freezer until the chocolate has set. About 10 minutes. 

  9. While the truffles are setting, you can make the optional date paste drizzle. Simple blend your dates in a high speed blender with 2-3 tbsp of boiling water. Once the truffles are done setting, drizzle them with the date paste and top with more toasted coconut (optional)

  10. These truffles are best kept in the freezer- pull them out 30 minutes before party time (as in party time in your mouth) and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*Dates that are pre-pitted are usually really dry and don’t blend well. If you only have pitted dates, soak them in boiled water for 10 minutes before blending.

Paleo Party Mix

Paleo Party Mix

Party food is the best food. Can we just all agree on that? All those little bites of food just sprawled out all over tables and counters. It’s like a food lovers paradise.

Since I love party food so much… and since it’s the season for holiday parties…. I thought I’d add to the list of fun snacky foods that would not only be great for a get together- but for daily snacking in general.

Who doesn’t like to snack right? This ‘party mix’ is definitely a party in your mouth and takes no more than 2 minutes to prep. AKA is a mama’s ideal snack situation. Chocolate, nuts, dried fruit- this mix has it all and the best part is it’s completely customization!

I chose dried cranberries this time around but apricots, blueberries, figs… anything really would be amazing! If you are a strict Paleo, make sure your dried fruit is JUST fruit no sugar!

For the nuts I used pecans and almonds but again whatever you want to use is fine. I’m kind of kicking myself for not adding pistachios. It’s fine. Just don’t make my mistake.

Lastly the seeds- I used pumpkin… because I had a HUGE amount. Real talk. Flax, sesame, pumpkin are all great options!

I know I said lastly but this is real the lastly- chocolate… it’s completely optional but not optional at all. You only need a little bit because 100% chocolate is riiiich but it finds all the ingredients together with the help of raw maple syrup.

So to recap. Super freaking easy. Super tasty. Super easy to customize.

Make it and enjoy!
