  • Serves 8
  • 1 cup Rye Bran
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 cup Orange peel marmalade (sugar reduced)
  • 1/8 cup Almond milk
  • 1/4 cup Almond flour
  • 2 drops Almond essence
  • 1 tablespoon Maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Poppy seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lavender & Rose leaves (dried, for decoration)
In This Recipe
  1. Mix the dry ingredients first: rye bran, sea salt and almond flour. Add orange peel marmalade.
  2. Drop in some almond essence to an almond milk. Stir into the paste.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350F (180ºC). Bake for 20min.
  4. Let it cool. Spread the maple syrup on top of the cake. Sprinkle the seeds and the flower leaves.
  5. I, personally, like to leave it rest for a few hours before cutting.

Bran is the hard outer layers of cereal grain. Bran is present in and may be milled from any cereal grain, including rice, corn, wheat, oats, barley and millet. Bran is particularly rich in dietary fiber and essential fatty acids and contains significant quantities of starch, protein, vitamins, dietary minerals and phytic acid, which is an antinutrient that prevents nutrient absorption.
