Apple-Quinoa Cake

In my opinion, its the sunflower seeds that make this cake. I prefer to make a simple crumb topping with butter, oats, and brown sugar, then pop it back in the oven to brown up a bit then serve this up as a coffee cake for brunch or dessert.

1/2 c
agave nectar
1/2 c
sunflower oil or other light flavored oil
2 c
quinoa, cooked
2 tsp
finely ground chia seeds
2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 tsp
apple cider vinegar
1/4 c
sunflower seeds
1/4 pkg
raisins
1 1/3 c
gluten free whole oat flour
1 tsp

1/2 tsp

1 tsp
ground ginger
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 tsp
cardamom, or less, to taste
1/2 tsp
sea salt
1/4 c
whole oats

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9" square pan or line it with parchment paper.
2
In a medium bowl, mix apple, agave nectar, oil, quinoa, chia seeds, vanilla, vinegar, sunflower seeds, and raisins. Set aside.
3
In a large bowl, sift all of the dry ingredients. Add the oats. Now add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix well.
4
Pour it into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 40 minutes or til a toothpick that you poke in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Cool completely before slicing. You can leave the top plain or top with the crumb topping that I speak of in the personal notes section.
