Holiday Banana Pumpkin Cake

IMG_1386.JPGhere is a super simple, egg based “cake” thing that I made. Things like this never last very long in my house. You can adjust the sweetness to your liking, but it’s not meant to be super sweet, more like a pound cake or a banana bread. You could probably convert it to muffins, but I like using a pie pan or square glass pan.

  • 5 eggs
  • 1 Cup coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin pie spice, or combo of cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg,ginger,and a dash of clove
  • 2 over ripe bananas
  • 1/3 can pumpkin
  • 1/8-1/4 cup Grade B Maple Syrup
  • Coconut Sugar to Top Before Baking
  • Pre-Heat oven to 375. Mix the ingredients together, either in a blender, or with a hand mixer. Pour into a greased/lined baking pan of some sort. Sprinkle some coconut sugar on top of the mix once you have it in the pan. Bake in the oven for 20-40 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cut into squares or wedges.


    Simple (But Awesome) Flank Steak

    IMG_1301.JPG

    1/8+ Cup Maple Syrup (GradeB)
    1-2 Tablespoons Celtic Sea Salt
    1/4 cup+ Coconut Aminos
    Cinnamon, smoked paprika
    2-3 Tbsp melted Butter

    I put my steak (2.5-3 lbs of yummy Flank Steak) in a ziplock Baggie, added my ingredients, and rolled it around and rubbed it to coat. I only Marinated My Steak for 20-30 min but you can play around with leaving it longer. Then I just thew it on the griddle until the middle reached 135 and let it rest for 10 min. That was a nice rare-medium rare. As always with a cut like flank steak, be sure to cut against the grain.

    I swear I’ll update more frequently, or at least I’ll try. I’ve been extra busy lately, and unfortunately posting took the back burner first….sanity yay. I actually have 3-5 posts half written….so I really just need to bunker down and finish them. In the mean time…eat steak 🙂
