After enjoying some, I set aside the rest to indulge on my birthday the next day. My 8 1/2-year-old PoPPed them all into his mouth, and I was barely able to rescue one for myself. Laughing and crying. Here’s the simplest sugar-free version I came up with.
6 oz. coconut flour
6 oz. gluten-free oat flour
touch of sea salt
1/2 t stevia powder
2 large mashed organic bananas
3/4 t rice bran oil or oil of choice (ghee works well if you do dairy)
chocolate almond butter
I ground the oats in the blender. Mix the dry and wet ingredients separately (holding off on the almond butter) before combining to get the dough texture of soft ice cream. Shape into 1-inch balls about the width of a U.S. quarter and place them on parchment paper. I baked on low to preserve nutrients. They were nice and sweet. When they’re five, ten minutes out of the oven and moist, you can insert the sticks and gently frost them with the almond butter using a spoon. This is the butter I used. Using a little more oats than coconut flour will help glue the sticks into the cake, though the 1:1 ratio is fine. Yields 20 pops.
Reblogged this on A Holistic Journey and commented:
The easiest sugar-free cake pops – from my food blog. I got mad at T for not saving me enough.
thanks for something neat and relevant to share- this one went straight back across my world to one where momma there has her one young man with a gluten sensitivity for which this will hopefully delight her and the other two boys too 😉 well three husbands are boys too sometimes…so I hear.
Great. Thanks for letting me know.
well, hopefully neat / relevant, jumping other’s chances at having an opinion of their own 😀 but *I* think it’s neat 🙂
I didn’t know you had a recipe site. I’d probably be best staying far away being that my cooking skills are so atrocious. My eating skills, however…well, those I’ve honed to perfection. Save a pop for me!
LOL. “Save a pop for me!” No such luck with the professional Eater in the house.
Oh man! Well, if you should ever need a replacement for the professional eater in your house, call me. I’m highly qualified. Been doing it for years.
LOL. Will keep you in mind.
I’ve not been able to build this site, as you all have stolen my heart on the H Journey.
Those sound and look so good. I’ll have to try making them 🙂
Great! Would love to know if you do.
I second Michele’s comment!
Sweet. Thanks. =)
I will keep this recipe. I don’t eat gluten and this one is easy.
Great. I make them as easy as possible not only for my tired brain but for the gut. Too many ingredients make digestion a challenge. (I didn’t frost them all, by the way. They were still very yummy.)
HW, you’re a mine of information on healthy cooking and holistic medicine. I had to google Stevia powder as I had never heard of it. Seems like a miracle powder, 10-15 times sweeter than sugar but with no calories and a glycemic index of zero!
Now all I have to do is to ask my better half to make it for me. That is unless you are mailing samples to loyal followers 🙂
Ha ha ha. I actually would do that. (And that would be HC on this site, not HW. =)) I was going to say in response to your knowledge of Alexander and FKrais that there are few things you have not read ahead of me, even in the world of natural health. If/when you do try the Stevia, go with the green or brown. The glycerin’s highly processed.
Please send them to my business address 🙂
But for the small matter of TiMe… =) As long as I am unable to post on the H Journey, no one is getting samples of anything. =)
It’s OK. I can wait until you have more time. You did promise, didn’t you?
You know I made no promises. Trying to sneak that past me. 😛
Your treats left me with a watering mouth!
=) T’s mouth doesn’t stay watered. He fills them right up.
Oh my goodness! These look yummy!!! And, happy belated birthday!!
How has life gotten so crazy that I’ve lost track of you, my friend??
I hope you are all doing well. xo
If you took the time to trace a reblog to its original post, you’re not doing bad for a friend. Thank you for the bday regards, Mickey. And I totally get crazy and busy.
Who could resist?
He and I fought for the last piece. LOL.
The cake pops look wonderful!
Thanks, Sheryl. They sure disappeared fast. =)
Viva la cake pops and la fiesta…Happy feasting.
Ha ha. Hear hear! Thanks.
Oh this sounds absolutely yummy and will have to try it! Thanks 🙂
Great. I was not pleased he took the last piece. LOL.
LOL can you blame him? 🙂
I am weaving in and out of the two blogs. Not sure if you got the other response but thanks. Glad you like the looks of it. We loved it.
My apologies, it’s difficult and I wish there was a way to distinguish the two with both of the blog names but the way it’s laid out I can only go by my main blog name. I wish this could be fixed. Sorry for the confusion. Love your site! Keep up the great work 🙂
Looks good–definitely something I want to try 🙂
Great. Thanks for the follow, too. =)
You’re most welcome 🙂
Oh no. So you tried it…can you say which part was unclear to you? Was your dough the consistency of soft ice cream? It’s that consistency that is most important. Too sticky and it won’t cook through evenly, a bit too dry and it’ll be too hard and crusty out of the oven. And may I ask when was the last time you’d baked? Side grin. I don’t mind taking full ownership and clarifying any part of the post.
I followed the recipe and it was perfect. It does require the large bananas as I said. You have to have faith as you mix the dough when it seems dry. It gets a little more moist as the bananas meld with the flour.
Thank you for remembering me. Clearly my mistake. It must have been those pesky bananas.
I’ll surely try making them 🙂
Good. =) Keep kneading them even if they look dry at first. The bananas will moisten the dough.
These will go first into my recipes file, and then into my mouth. Delicious.
Hi Eli. Was actually thinking of you. =) Keep kneading them even when they look dry at first. The bananas will moisten the dough.
Thanks for sharing 😀 I recently made some halloween lollipops and would love for you to check them out 🙂 http://www.lifeismyblog.com
Mmmmm! This is delicious! Will this “survive” a camping trip of around 3 days? Would love to have a dessert in the wilderness.
Yes, it should. I always seal my baked goods well in a container with a lid. =) Would love to know if you packed it for the camping.
My system won’t allow me to add my “like” to anyone’s blog for some strange reason. But know that I like this! It looks delish! I pinned it to my Pinterest page, too!
Thank you for the support. =) They go fast. 😉
Wish I were a better photographer (or had a better camera.) =)
I also need to be gluten free AND I can only use pure, organic Stevia as a sweetener for health reasons. I can’t wait to try this recipe! Thank you for sharing! They look delicious!
Hope it turned out well. =)
These look delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed your other post ‘7 habits of highly effective bloggers’. Very thoughtfully written. You really know how to word your thoughts and make the reader bound to the post. Hooked. Good Luck.
Thank you so much for stopping at my blog space.
Excelente recomendación, trataré de hacerlas…
