When we were getting closer to Aidalyn’s birthday party, I knew I didn’t want her to have a “typical” birthday cake loaded with processed sugar and non-nutrients. I did a lot of digging. I wanted something that was grain free but didn’t have a lot of hard to find ingredients. I found this to be easy and very tasty too! I ended up making a cream cheese frosting with just a block of cream cheese mixed some milk to make it smooth. I may have sweetened it with a touch of agave nectar. Sophie and Aidalyn seemed to approve!
I baked mine as cupcakes – seeing that we were having a “cupcake” themed party.
Original post from the Modern Alternative Mama:
3 c. white beans, cooked and plain
9 tbsp. coconut oil
1 c. + 2 tbsp. raw honey
2 tbsp. vanilla
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. baking soda
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on medium, then high until smooth. Pour into two well-greased 9″ pans and bake at 350 for 35 – 40 min. Once cooled, remove from the pans carefully and serve plain, with fresh jam (fruit blended with honey), fresh fruit, or however you like!
