Someone called it a birthday cake. Would I make it for my birthday? Maybe, but because I love lemon cakes. But if you are not a fan of sour tastes I guess you would go for another taste for your birthday.

Sour taste – oh, yes! I absolutely love deserts that is made from lemons and always try and experiment new recipes. This was adopted from The Stone Soup website. Thank you! I made it this week and couldn’t stop eating.


Again we come to those recipes that requires only few ingredients rather than a huge list. Fewer ingredients dishes tend to be healthier. Of course, if they are not full of fat and sugar. Actually, this one has some of just mentioned. But I am working making it healthier. My brother always scared to eat my cakes because they are too ‘healthy’ for him.


So our ingredients look like this:

180g butter

 70g of coconut butter

 250g brown sugar

2 eggs 

250g almond meal (flour)

zest of 2 lemons + 1/2 cup lemon juice (I squeezed two small lemons and one  small lime lemon)

2 table spoons of poppy seeds

1 tea spoon of baking powder


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Cream butter, coconut butter and sugar. Add eggs one at the time. Add almond flour, lemon zest, juice, baking powder and poppy seeds. Stir everything very well and add the batter to the tin covered with baking paper. Bake for 45 minutes. Leave it to cool in the tin. I didn’t have patience and tried while it was still warm. Oh, if was delicious. With some coconut, dairy free ice-cream! Oh, how delicious it was. But wait, the leftover cake I kept in the fridge and tried it cold. Wow, that was something so delicious that I didn’t taste for ages. My suggestion you have it cold, from the fridge. But what ever option you chose – it is so good. Forgot to mention – this cake is flourless!

Happy Thursday!

Kai pati atradau šį receptą negalėjau patikėti, kad gali būti tokie skanūs sausainiai.  Tikiu, kad ir jūs nekantraujat sužinoti, kokie tie paslaptingi ingredientai? Taigi, mums reikės:

Dviejų labai prinokusių bananų

Puodelio avižinių dribsnių

Papildomai naudojau:

Linų sėmenis

Sezamo sėklas

Pinijų riešutus


Taigi, pirmiausia keptuvėje paskrudinau linų sėmenis, sezamo sėklas ir pinijų riešutus su medumi.  Labai svarbu gerai maišyti, kad nesudegtų.  Kada švelniai apskrus, išjungti keptuvę ir palikti keletą minučių atvėsti.  Tuo tarpu sutrinti bananus kartu su avižiniais dribsniais.  Mano dribsniai buvo ekologiški, gana stambūs, tad naudojau blenderį (smulkintuvą).  Po to sudėjau skrudintas sėklas ir vėl viską sumaliau.  Po to formavau sausainukus.  Kepti orkaitėje 170 C apie 15-20 min.  Valgyti atvėsusius.  Patariu valgyt ryte per pusryčius – energija visai dienai.

Two ingredients cookies



Two ingredient biscuits – could it be so easy?  Yes, not only easy but also very delicious.  Let’s see what we need:


2 very very ripe bananas

1 cup of oats (those who can not have gluten products should look for gluten free oats)

Additional ingredients I used:


Sesame seeds

Pine nuts


You can add any addition ingredients you like.  You can also add raisins, chocolate chips, nuts and other seeds, poppy seeds – it is all about your imagination and taste.  If your bananas are not very ripe you should add more honey or even brown sugar – of course if you want to have them sweet.  So, all you do is smash bananas and add oats.  I was using blender to make a smooth ‘dough’.  But before that I gently roasted all additional ingredients in a pan and then mixed with bananas and oats.  When you are ready – form biscuits and bake!  Use 170 C degrees and bake for 15 minutes.  Please, wait to cool down before you eat.  Very good in the morning – many nutritions for a good start of the day.  Enjoy! Taste!
