Hemp Flour & Date Version

  • Pit and chop the date and stir it into the batter along with the hemp flour and cinnamon. Pour half of the batter into the greased oven dish, top it with the soy yogurt and finally the rest of the batter. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the oven or for 2:20 minutes at 800 watts in the microwave.

*To substitute the banana, use either 50g of applesauce, one egg or a mixture of flaxseed and water. For the latter, soak one tablespoon of ground flaxseed in three tablespoons of water for 7 to 10 minutes before mixing it with the rest of the ingredients. For the egg, use only 80 ml or 1/3 cup of milk first and see how much more you need. Bake this version for at least 20 minutes.
