Kitz special Banana cinnamon swirl cake with cashew frosting

I had no intention of even writing this recipe down let alone blogging it, it was just a throw together I did yesterday to use up some some very ripe bananas. My little bucket of ground active almonds I have in the freezer for making grain free goodies was empty so I turned to the  pantry and found some packs of Buckies, 4 seed crackers and natural Active almonds, threw them in the blender and whizzed them into a meal. I also made some grain free, sugar free passionfruit pancakes for my Jo.

So why am I adding it to my online recipe book, because the Angles loved it so much they asked me to!! and that seemed like a pretty good reason to me. It also means that I have a record of what I did so that I can do it again. Well at least try to!!

Cashew cream

½ cup cashews soaked for 1-2 hours, rinse then add water to just cover in a small personal blender like the tribest or magic bullet.
Add a pinch of stevia and vanilla or a soaked date/honey or agave

You can serve the cream warm or cool it in the fridge if you prefer it cold

You can leave the cake out for a day then it must go in the fridge.


I have this feeling this one needs a raw version!!!
