Nothing quite screams fall like chunky wool sweaters, crisp cool air, changing of leaves, and of course, all the apples and spices! And to help celebrate the beginning of this cozy season, I bring you a very fall themed dessert; a dessert with a healthy, gut-friendly twist - Probiotic Chai Spice Apple Cake.
Imagine capturing all the smells and flavors of the season, throwing in some gut-loving probiotics, and doing it all in a sugar-free (or low-sugar), grain-free, flourless cake. A cake so healthy it could be served as breakfast or dessert…or both! No need to imagine it, because you can easily whip it up yourself.
And bonus, your house will instantly smell like all things fall and coziness.
Not only are Chai spices a perfect match for apples, but so is caramel! The recipe below has two different versions, and you can make whichever depending on what you have in your kitchen cabinet.
For the Chai spices in the cake, you can add the Addictive Wellness Chai Elixir Blends OR the cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweetener of your choice.
And for the optional caramel sauce, you can either use the Addictive Wellness Caramel Elixir Blends or go for the pumpkin, almond butter route.
Either way is delicious, and both ways support your gut to help keep you healthy and fueled so you don’t miss out on any fall festive fun.
