Apple sauce

  1. In a pan add chopped apples and juice and cook them over medium or low flame for 20-25 minutes or until soft and pulpy. Keep stirring them in the middle to avoid them from burning.
  2. Once done, add honey and keep it aside to cool.
  3. You can puree them in a blender if the apple pieces are too big.

  2. In a large bowl add chopped bananas and mash them.
  3. Now add apple sauce and eggs and give it a good mix. Then add vanilla essence and milk and mix until well combined.
  4. In another bowl sieve whole wheat flour, cinnamon powder, salt, baking soda and almond flour. Then add chopped walnuts and mix again.
  5. Now add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in two steps. Don’t over mix the batter else the cake will become hard and dense.
