  • 1 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 cup Cassava Flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon Cream of Tarter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cardamom
  • pinch Ground Cloves
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Powder
  • 3 Eggs AIP Reintroduction
  • 1 cup Coconut Oil or Avocado Oil
  • 1 cup Maple Syrup
  • 2 cups Applesauce
  • 1/2 cup Banana mashed
  • 3 Apples 1 peeled and sliced and the other 2 peeled and diced 9 (about 2 cups)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium size bowl and then stir to combine. Combine all wet ingredients in a large bowl and ten stir to combine.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the large bowl with the wet ingredients then stir to combine.
  • Fold the diced apples into the batter. Pour the batter into a 9x13 glass baking dish.
  • Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until knife comes out clean.


  • This recipe does use eggs. Eggs are a reintroduction; so please make sure to reintroduce them before you try this dessert.
  • I have not tried this recipe using gelatin eggs. I’m not sure if it would be a good substitution for this ingredient.
  • If you would like to substitute vanilla extract (AIP reintroduction), you’ll need to use about 1 teaspoon.
