Flourless and Low Glycemic Index
Here is a great tasting fruit cake made without any kind of flour and it’s very tasty. And this cake has a low glycemic index and works wonders for those who are diabetic or pre-diabetic. This cake is easy to make and it’s full of the goodness of sweet potatoes or pumpkin. And lots of wonderful nuts, and no added sugars or oils and it’s full of great fiber for boosting up our immune system.
5 – Cups of Organic Cooked Pumpkin or Sweet Potato, sweet potatoes have a lower glycemic index.
6 – Organic Dried Figs – if you like it sweeter add one or two more figs.
1 – Cup of Organic Unsweetened Nut Milk
1 – Cup of Cooked Organic Garbanzo Beans
1 – Teaspoon of Organic Vanilla Extract
2 – Teaspoons of Organic Baking Powder
2 – Teaspoons of Organic White Vinegar
1 – Teaspoon of Organic Cinnamon Powder
1 – Cup of Organic Flax Seed Gel – this acts like eggs as a binding agent.
Enough filtered water to blend things together.
4 – Cups of Organic Trail Mix with Different Nuts and Seeds – And dried fruit can be added if one likes… more fruit will increase the glycemic index.
Take the flax seeds and put them in a large glass and add water and allow them to sit overnight in the frig. The water will turn to gel and that gel works great as an egg substitute. In the morning remove 1 cup of the gel to use in the fruit cake.
Mix together in a large powerful blender the pumpkin or sweet potato, figs, nut milk, garbanzos, vanilla extract, baking powder, white vinegar, cinnamon, and flax seed gel… and blend until smooth. Remover from the blender into a mixing bowl and add the trail mix and mix well.
Then pour into a baking pan and place in a preheated 375 degree oven for 45 to 60 minutes until the top starts to brown and a toothpick comes out somewhat clean. This is a very moist cake so the toothpick will always have some batter that will adhere to it.
Next remove from the open and allow to cool completely. And I have found that the best way is to cover this after it cools and place it in the frig overnight so it sets up and becomes firm. Then slice and serve, it will serve about 12 people.
Health Benefits of Organic Sweet Potatoes
Sweet Potatoes are full of B-6 Vitamins which is great for helping reduce inflammation and which also helps reduce arthritis, cardiovascular problems, and also strokes. Sweet Potatoes are also filled with a good amount of iron that helps our blood transport more oxygen and powers up our muscles, boosts our immune system, and also helps with stress. Sweet potatoes are full of magnesium and most people don’t get enough magnesium in their diet. And magnesium helps us feel relaxed and magnesium important in the integrity of our blood vessels, heart muscle, nerves, and our bones. And potassium is great for anyone with electrolyte problems and irregular heart beats, and Sweet Potatoes contains lots of potassium. And Sweet Potatoes contain Vitamin D which is great for enhancing our mood and giving us a boost of energy, and building a strong and vital organ system. And Sweet Potatoes are full of betacarotene which is a great anti-oxidant that helps get rid of free radicals and thus help to prevent DNA damage and disease. What I like most about Sweet Potatoes is that they break down into glucose much slower than other starches thus making them great for diabetics. Bake them, mash them, grill them, make long strings out of them with a peeler and make Sweet Potato pasta–Sweet Potatoes are Wonderful!
Health Benefits of Organic Garbanzo Beans
Garbanzo beans are a very important source of molybdenum which helps in the process of detoxing the body. Garbanzo beans are also high in fiber and protein and help lower cholesterol especially the LDL or bad cholesterol… and thus prevent heart disease. And they also lower blood sugar levels. Garbanzos also contain 84.5% of the body’s daily manganese which is a good anti-oxidant and helps boost our immune system. And garbanzos also contain a good amount of iron for healthy hemoglobin and treating anemia, and tryptophan which helps us relax, de-stress, and get a good nights rest.
Remember Always Eat Organic – Most regular veggies in the stores contain up to 6 cancer causing chemicals, 12 hormone disrupting chemicals, and 12 other chemicals which cause disease. — So it’s imperative to eat organic to stay healthy.
Enjoy This Great Cake.
PS – I have made this cake 4 times in the last 3 weeks – GREAT!
Many Blessings to Everyone!
