This delicious pumpkin cake recipe is very easy to make and is also vegan. I am a little hesitant to call it healthy because it does contain a lot of sugar, but most of its ingredients - whole spelt flour, chia seeds and pumpkin, are very healthy. So test it out and judge for yourself.
This is a vegan version of a recipe I downloaded a few years ago from food.com (now called genius kitchen) and in my opinion it is just as tasty as the original. I am always trying out vegan versions of all kinds of recipes because one of my kids eats no animal products.
By the time I remembered that I should of photographed it, there was only one tiny piece left... Next time, I'll try to remember a little earlier and show you some better photos of this great little cake.
Chia seeds have become popular in the last few years as an excellent source for omega 3 as well as fiber. They also contain protein, iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc.
Chia seeds are very absorbent and when mixed with water form a gelatinous mixture which helps bind ingredients together. It therefore makes for a great egg substitute.
