date sweetened apple cake

When Matt is looking for a "snack" I know he wants something sweet to eat- but I also know he doesn't want it to have much sugar and he wants it to have nutritional value.

I experimented today and came up with a really yummy snack I think fits the bill :)  Alissa loved it so much she begged me to write down the recipe before I forgot it.  So here it is!

1 cups pitted dates (cover with water in a pot, bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.  Drain)
4 eggs
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 T coconut flour
1 t baking powder
cinnamon and nutmeg
2 cups of peeled, diced apples
In a vitamix (or other blender) put the drained dates, eggs, and coconut oil.  Blend until smooth.  Pour into bowl, add coconut flour and baking powder.  Mix.  Add apples and stir until evenly distributed.
Line an 8” square baking pan with parchment paper (or grease pan) and pour batter into pan.  

Bake at 350* for 20-25 minutes
