Oat Cakes


  • ½ cup of date purée
  • ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup liquid coconut oil (lukewarm)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. New Roots Herbal’s Stevia Sugar, or a pinch of Stevia White Powder Concentrate or Smooth Stevia
  • 1 cup gluten-free quick oatmeal
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour (I used ¼ cup brown rice flour, ¼ cup quinoa flour, and ½ cup almond flour)
  • A pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

In a bowl, mix the dates, the apple sauce, the egg, the oil, and the vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. You can also add ¼ cup raisins or dark chocolate chips.

Place dough with a spoon on a baking sheet. Put in the oven for 15 to 17 minutes.

Date Purée

Cover with boiling or very hot water 100 g (about ½ cup) of dates. Let stand for a few minutes, drain, and set the liquid aside. Purée with a hand blender. Add leftover liquid if necessary. The purée should remain relatively thick, but smooth.
