Ontbijtkoek- No Refined Sugar/Gluten/Dairy

Ontbijtkoek- No Refined Sugar/Gluten/Dairy

I have been trying to make a Dutch ‘ontbijtkoek’ which I could enjoy in the morning without suffering any symptom’s afterwards. In my case it had to be

  • Refined sugar free
  • Dairy free
  • Gluten free
  • Soy & corn free

Using oat flour together with flax seeds, apple fibers, banana and dadels makes the ontbijtkoek rich in dietary fibers. It is truly satiating without increasing the blood sugar too rapidly. It is sweet but it doesn’t contain simple, refined sugars – you can enjoy it every day without compromising your well being.

I really like this breakfast cake. It is nicely moist and its texture is so light.
