A few changes that I made to the recipe - 1) half honey and half maple syrup, 2) extra virgin coconut oil for butter (remember, I can't have dairy), and 3) our previously cooked oatmeal (2 batches) had both apples and blackberries in them...so there was apple, blackberries and blueberries in the cake. I will definitely be making this one again.
The second recipe was in a comment I read on The Nourishing Gourmet's post asking people for their favorite uses for bananas. More than one person commented on making a chocolate "pudding" with them. Since I had four bananas that needed to be used soon, I decided to surprise the family with a treat after dinner.
The kids and I thought this was GREAT. Nathan wasn't so sure. It definitely tasted like banana and chocolate, but those two go together wonderfully (IMO). If you are interested, here's the recipe I used:
Vegan Chocolate Pudding
3 T full fat cocoa powder (or to taste)
1 T maple syrup or honey (really, this could be left out, the bananas are sweet enough on their own)
Mix it all in a blender, pour in bowls/cups and chill until time to serve.
I think this could be a good snack (minus the extra sweetener) for the kids and me...
