Here’s a holiday recipe from the Wheat Belly 30-Minute Cookbook.
These cakes taste like gingerbread cookies and will delight big and little kids: They’ll feel like they’re having dessert for breakfast! Minus wheat and sugar, we create healthy cakes that have no nutritional downside.
Spread cream cheese, butter, fruit butters, or Raspberry Chia Jam or Plum Jam (recipes in Cookbook) over the top.
If you don’t have the All-Purpose Baking Mix, you can substitute 2 cups almond meal/flour.
