From the Ambar Laboratory: Gluten Free Egg Free Cake

This is what I did and here are my notes- This is my own recipe!!

Dry Ingredients
3/4 cup of oat flour
1 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup of milled or ground flax seed
1/2 scoop of protein shake powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

Wet Ingredients
1/4 cup of Chia Seeds in 1 cup of hot water (note: put seeds in blender for 1 minute and sift them through a sifter and then add them to the water. Then the cake won't be too crunchy)
1/4 c of honey
1/2 cup almond milk
1 cup of berries
1/4 cup of sunflower seeds (maybe only a couple of tablespoons, it really was too crunchy)

The only change would be to put in a tad bit more salt and no berries on top. The cake held together well where there were no berries on top. It tastes more like a health bar than cake and I liked it so next time I would put more nuts and less fruit. I guess if you are more of a sweet person than salty you could add more fruit or even some chocolate chips. Again, this is my first time experimenting with this. I am curious about using chia seeds in cooking. And yes it is a great thing to eat when you need energy. I think I need to add more flour too.
