This scratch cake tastes just like a regular scratch cake (we promise) but differs when it comes to content. It is nutritious, gluten-free and completely free of added white sugar. The best cookie recipe we've ever tried. Eat as is or serve with whipped coconut cream and fresh raspberries.
The cookie we can't get enough of
It's packed with high-quality fats from real butter (can be made dairy-free by swapping real butter for coconut oil), organic eggs and almond flour. Through the high-quality fats, we balance out the fresh dates, which helps the body to stabilize blood sugar (which is crucial for balanced hormones). It is also rich in protein from eggs and collagen. In addition, it contains carbohydrates and fibers from fresh dates. The icing on the cake is magensium from the cocoa, which is perfect to boost with if you recognize yourself getting a sweet tooth before your period .
For example, if you have problems with insulin sensitivity or PCOS, you can reduce the number of fresh dates to reduce the impact on blood sugar. Another tip is to take a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed in a large glass of water and drink it 20 minutes before you eat the cake - it helps balance blood sugar.
Recipe Womensync Scrapbook
8-10 fresh pitted dates (we usually use 6-8 for a more hardcore version with less impact on blood sugar)
3 organic eggs
75 g real butter (goes with 1/2 dl melted coconut oil too)
2 dl almond flour
4 tbsp cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
0.5 tsp vanilla powder
0.25 tsp iodized salt
To boost extra:
2 tablespoons of Womensync Collagen
Heat the oven to 175 degrees. Core the dates and mix together with the rest of the ingredients to a smooth batter. Grease a mold with coconut oil and pour in the batter. Bake in the oven for about 8-12 minutes, depending on the oven and form. We were in 14 minutes because had a SMALL shape. It is ready when the cake is firm at the edges and sticky in the middle (it will harden after it has been left out for a while). Eat and enjoy!
Also tried to make a double batch and it turned out as good as could be! If you make a double batch, it will fit in a larger or "regular" cake tin.
