Sweetened with dates, this orange almond cake is moist, flavorful, and light. Chia eggs are used instead of regular ones, to hold the cake together and keep the texture rich. Enjoy this cake on its own or with a dollop of your favorite dairy-free whipped cream.

Orange Almond Cake [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Ingredients

  • 2 organic oranges, washed
  • 1 cup dates, pitted

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Preparation

  1. Wash the oranges and cook in boiling water for 2 hours. Drain, allow to cool to room temperature, then purée.
  2. In a food processor, mix the almond meal, dates, oranges, chia eggs, and baking powder, and mix until you have a smooth dough.
  3. Preheat the oven to 320°F. Grease and line a spring-form cake tin with baking paper.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!
