  • 3/4-1 cup preferred milk will depend on your apple size, start with 3/4 and add additional if you need it
  • 1/2 cup palm sugar + 1/4 cup equivalent stevia, I use NuNaturals Clear Stevia
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil palm shortening
  • 1 apple chunked and cored
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flax meal or chia meal
  • 1 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • Zest of one orange Use a Microplane, there is NO better tool for this!


  • 3/4 cup sprouted brown rice flour I am sure brown rice flour would work too, but sprouted brown rice flour is easier to digest and produces a finer crumb
  • 1/2 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour or rice flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon guar gum
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries or more to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, grease a 9" spring-form pan, or and 9" pan
  2. First place all topping ingredients into a high powered blender, or the bowl of a food processor and pulse until crumbled and blended.
  3. Pour the topping into a bowl, and place all the wet ingredients in the jar or bowl, and pulse to break up the apple and then puree until smooth and well combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and cranberries, and pulse until roughly chopped and mostly combined. You can use a spatula to mix any last bits of flour in.
  5. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, then sprinkle the topping over.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes, or until a a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean,
