  • 1 cup almond flour

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons cold water, or as needed


  • 3 eggs

  • 2 cups vanilla soy milk

  • 1 cup milk

  • cup maple syrup

  • cup hemp powder

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 2 apples, peeled and diced

  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats, divided

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa

  • cup chopped pecans

  • ¼ cup raisins

  • ¼ cup flax seeds

  • 1 banana, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Mix almond flour and coconut oil together in a bowl. Add enough water to form a thick dough. Press into the bottom of the baking dish to form a crust.

  3. Beat eggs in a large bowl until smooth. Add soy milk, milk, maple syrup, hemp powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg; beat until combined. Stir apples, 1 1/4 cup oats, quinoa, pecans, raisins, and flax seeds into the batter.

  4. Spread banana slices over crust. Pour batter evenly over banana slices. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup oats on top.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cake is mostly set but retains some moisture, about 1 hour. Let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Cover and chill before serving.

Cook's Note:

Substitute milk for the soy milk if desired.
