For breakfast today I didn’t get much time to make anything so I just grabbed a banana and a couple handfuls of cashews. The kids and I were heading up north to Mount Vernon WA to see the tulip fields with my mom.

For lunch I bought a chef salad at the little grocery market in a really cute town called La Connor. We found a picnic table and just ate our lunch by the water.

For dinner at my moms she made us some really good chicken and vegetable soup with rosemary. For desert I made a greek walnut spiced cake.  I found a recipe for a cake called karydopita and gave it my own “make over”.  It turned out great and I think it would also make a good breakfast cake because it wasn’t overly sweet and it is high in protein. I made an orange glaze to go on top sweetened with only orange juice and stevia.  Here is the recipe for the walnut spice cake:

Greek walnut spiced cake

1/2 cup garbanzo flour

1/2 cup brown rice flour

4 tablespoons coconut flour

1 cup walnuts ground

1 cup walnuts crushed

2/3 cup melted smart balance butter

2 egg whites

1 tablespoon ground chia seeds

1 cup non dairy milk (I used coconut/almond)

1/4 cup honey

1/2 teaspoon molasses

2 packets of stevia

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

3/4 tablespoon ground cloves

1 tablespoon grated orange peel

2 tablespoons applesauce

pinch of sea salt (optional)

Mix together the ingredients except for 1/2 cup of crushed walnuts and sprinkle the walnuts on top. Bake at 350 until cakes is firm and starting to brown around the edges (about 20 minutes).

Orange glaze

Juice of 1 orange

2 tablespoons coconut or almond/coconut milk

1 packet stevia

1/2 tablespoon melted coconut oil

1/2 tablespoon coconut flour (you can add more or less flour depending on thickness desired)

This makes glaze for about 2 or 3 servings.
