Summer time and the living is easy. Not so easy if you’re dealing with brain fog and exhaustion due to adrenal fatigue or hypothyroidism. Here’s a recipe for a super simple dessert that requires hardly any energy at all.
Lemon Coconut Quick Cake ready in under 5 minutes. There’s something about lemon that just says summer. Who wants to slave over a hot stove for dessert when you can enjoy a gluten-free sugar-free cake that’s as delicious as it is healthy.
Thanks to the coconut, it’s loaded with healthy medium-chain fatty acids which by-pass your digestive tract and head straight to your liver where your brain can be fueled faster. And because it gets its zing from fresh lemon juice and lemon essential oil, you also get an anti-bacterial anti-viral punch too!
Isn’t it great when you can have your cake and feel great too?!
Lemon Coconut Quick Cake
1 tbs butter (if you’re dairy free, use coconut oil)
3 tbs unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 heaping tbs coconut flour (use less for more moist cake)
1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/8-1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbs fresh lemon juice (1/2 medium lemon)
2 drops lemon essential oil
8 drops of liquid stevia OR 1 tbs powdered erythritol

Oh, and be sure to let me know how it works for you!
