Vegan, Gluten Free Chocolote Cake

So, many of you don't know that I used to be allergic to milk. Thankfully my milk allergy disappeared around puberty!
My two favorite things...
Unfortunately, what I didn't know is that allergies can return if you go through a change in hormones or a catastrophic sickness. Last year on my honeymoon I caught a terrible case of food poisoning, along with a succession of four UTI's throughout the next three months. Then we sadly suffered a miscarriage. To put it simply, my hormones and body were completely worn out. And my milk allergy came back. Yay?

That brings me to today's blog post for Vegan, Gluten Free Chocolate "Cake". This is SO yummy and guilt free! I don't add any sugar, as there is a little sugar in the apple sauce and also in my Justin's hazelnut chocolate. 
Vegan Chocolate Cake
  • 1 cup rolled oats (make sure say GF)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Justin's
  • 2 tbs peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon v extract
  • pinch of salt
That's it. Stir it all together and bake for 25 minutes at 350f. Makes two servings.
I seriously eat this for breakfast.

Interesting...but with the ingredients you listed it sure does sound breakfast suitable. My favorite way of eating oatmeal is just plain oatmeal with homemade applesauce.

this sounds delicious! i put nutella in my oatmeal, so this is right down my alley.

our bodies do crazy things, huh? i never realized that after each pregnancy your body resets itself with how your periods will affect you. i never had an issue before i was pregnant with gage, but after he was born my periods were insane. tmi, i know. but just along the lines of our crazy bodies.
