Ingredients

Scale

Bottom Cake Layer

  • 1 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Strawberry Chia Jam

  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 tbsp date nectar or honey 
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

Crumble Topping

  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1 tbsp applesauce
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Start making the strawberry jam by combining the date nectar or honey, strawberries, and water in a small pot on the stove.
  3. Once the strawberries are soft mash them with a potato masher or fork. Mix in the chia seeds and remove from the heat.
  4. Next move on to the bottom cake layer. Combine all the bottom layer ingredients.
  5. Pour into a greased or parchment paper lined 8×8 baking tray.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes.
  7. While the bottom layer is baking, make the crumble topping.
  8. Mix the almond flour and oats.
  9. Add in the coconut oil, coconut sugar, and applesauce until everything combines. The mixture should be a little sticky and crumbly.
  10. Remove the bottom cake layer from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. The longer you let the bottom layer cool, the better the results will be.
  11. Top the bottom cake layer with the strawberry jam.
  12. Spread the crumble topping on top of the strawberry jam.
  13. Bake for 10 minutes.
  14. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  15. Cut into squares and enjoy!
