  • 5 T oat flour
  • 1 1/2 T cocoa powder
  • 1/4 t baking powder
  • dash sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 t coconut oil
  • 1 T applesauce
  • 1 T fresh orange juice (or milk of your choice)
  • 1 t orange zest


  • 1 1/2 T peanut butter (or use whatever nut or seed butter you like)
  • 1-3 T milk of your choice as desired for your preferred consistency
  • 1 t maple syrup
  • stevia if desired for extra sweetness


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix all the ingredients for the cake.
  • Pour the batter into a small, well-oiled ramekin (mine holds about one cup of liquid).
  • Bake the cake for 15-20 minutes until springy to the touch.
  • In the meantime, whisk together the ingredients for the 'frosting', if using. Add more milk as desired for consistency.
  • Cool the cake a bit, remove it from the ramekin, and top!
  • Enjoy!
