Cook Time 0 minutes
Servings 2

  • 1/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup

  • 1/3 cup cassava flour
  • Optional mix ins such as coconut flakes, cacao nibs or chocolate chips!


  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and the wet ingredients in a small bowl. (The wet ingredients mix best if you use a blender on low but this is not completely necessary.)

  2. Once both mixtures are evenly mixed, slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry until even.

  3. Fold in toppings of choice!

  4. Eat immediately or refrigerate for an hour for a more chilled experience. This tastes great right off the spoon or on top of something such as a sliced apple or sweet potato "toast". You can't go wrong!
