Small apple, banana and cinnamon cakes & Grapes smoothie


   After a short Summer break, the return  to blogging matches with the beginning of the school year for most kids, here in Lisbon, including my daughter.
  Entering  a new school where children have no friends awakens some excitement associated with nerves.
   With the return to school,  it also comes the concern with what snacks to take. Although seasonal fruits are the first choice, I sometimes prepare a sweet treat, which is also good if not eaten on a regular basis. And because the first day at a new school is always special, I thought it would be nice to take a sweet snack.
    It is precisely that what I’m blogging about -  apple, banana and cinnamon cakes and to go with  a grape smoothie.

(it makes 12 small cakes)

200 gr flour
50 g whole spelt flour
180 gr demerara sugar
300g apples peeled and cut into slivers
1 + 1/2 smashed bananas
200 ml of warmed coconut oil
1 tbsp of cinnamon powder
1 tsp of baking powder

Preheat oven to 200

Mix the flours.
Add baking powder and cinnamon. Wrap with a spoon.

Add the demerara sugar, the bananas and finally the apples. Mix well.

Add the coconut oil and mix everything.

Put the mixture into shapes and bake for 20-25 minutes depending on the size of the shapes.

Grapes smoothie:

Select a good quality bunch of grapes and remove the pips.
Place in a blender and add 200 ml of vegetable milk. Grind and serve with the cakes.

Bon appétit!
