Grain Free Apple Cake


4 eggs  (or the equivalent in flax or chia goo)
 1 ¾ cups coconut sugar
½ cup pure maple syrup
½ cup melted coconut oil
 2 heaping teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
6 -8 medium Gala, Fuji, or Honey Crisp apples
1 cup coconut flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. guar gum

Preheat oven to 350*.   
In a large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, syrup,  and oil.
Peel and slice the apples, adding to mixture in bowl (coating as you go to keep them from turning brown).
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and guar gum.  Add to the ingredients in the large bowl.  Mix well until all of the flour is absorbed by the wet ingredients.
Coat a 9x13” or two round 9” pans with cooking spray.
Pour mixture into prepared pans.
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes.

This is an adaptation of the Grain Free Apple Cake recipe that I just posted.  I wanted a cake that I could eat, that was free of grain and refined sugar, as well as dairy, soy, and corn.    The cake itself is a bit crumbly - but oh so filling and yummy!
