It’s challenging being energy sensitive sometimes when you are craving a sweet treat. More and more energy sensitive people are realizing they are gluten and dairy sensitive. This is a recipe I have created, tried and tested. It freezes well and also makes wonderful muffins.

Once mixed, add 3-4 cups of grated zucchini Bake at 350 for 25-40 min. Insert toothpick to check it done. This cake baking time depends on many variables and needs to be monitored. **** this recipe make 2 cakes. Glaze Icing: Icing sugar and 1-2 tbsp almond milk almond milk with a drop of vanilla and almond extract This cake is wonderful with toasted almonds sprinkled on top in place of candy sprinkles. **** I created this as a gluten free version of my auntie Irma’s recipe in her cookbook ‘Hanna’s Heritage’ which is a collection of recipes inspired by my grandmother Hanna.
TIP: applesauce is a fantastic snack to have on hand to helps your body after an anxiety attack, stress or a reading. I love having a batch of homemade applesauce in the fridge for baking and eating.
To make applesauce, simply peel and core 5 or 6 apples and simmer in a saucepan with a few tbsp of water for an hour on low. Mash, cool and refrigerate up to a week. Really good to have as a snack with a dash of cinnamon.
