Here’s a tasty, filling dessert recipe that combines two of my favorite flavors – cinnamon and pecan. You can adjust this recipe in so many ways. Add in some extra almonds or pumpkin seeds, mix in some shredded, unsweetened coconut, or even add a little vanilla extract. Don’t be afraid to make your own version!
Almond flour is a gluten-free low-carbohydrate alternative to your regular flour. And antifungal ingredients like coconut oil and cinnamon give it an antifungal kick to help maintain a healthy balance of microorganisms in your gut.
These little cakes are the perfect snack for friends and family. You can make a large batch and freeze them too. Take them on a picnic, or just keep them in the house for those between-meal hunger pangs. Just remember to make enough!
