For the breakfast cake

  • Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a loaf pan (or a baking dish) with cooking spray/oil/butter and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the milk, vanilla extract and egg/flax egg. Pour into the dry mixture, along with the unsweetened apple sauce. Add the melted nut butter (and maple syrup for paleo option) and mix very well until a batter is formed.
  • Transfer the batter to the loaf pan or baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown on top and a toothpick comes on clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before serving or frosting, if desired.

For the frosting

  • Add all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Using a tablespoon, add dairy free milk until a VERY thick batter is formed.


Breakfast cake is best kept in the fridge, but is totally freezer friendly! f you decide to use the frosting(s), it's best to make fresh or keep separate until ready for consumption!
