Yesterday was my birthday and it has become a tradition for me to make my own birthday cake. It’s not that nobody offered (my husband and teenager both offered), but I like to experiment and find the healthiest version so I can share it with my clients. Friends laugh when I tell them I like to make my own birthday cake. “What is it made of … tofu?” they say. Well, no, but I did come up with an interesting alternative.
Over the years, I have found that I feel much better when I stay away from grains and refined sugars. What are the 2 ingredients in most birthday cakes? Grains and sugar. So what to do? It’s time to get creative. Some healing diets that I have done for myself over the years have used a creative ingredient for the base of a cake – what is it you ask? White beans! Who knew that cooked white beans would create a nice texture for cake! Having said that, this is what I came up with. Rather than a cake-y texture, it is more of a creamy texture. Check it out and let us know in the comments below what you think.
