  • 3/4 cup honey

  • 6 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups grated macintosh apples, peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

Preheat the oven to 325°F and adjust rack to middle position. Stir together honey, eggs, oil, coconut milk, almond flour, coconut flour, gelatin, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon and vanilla in a large bowl. Fold in apples, coconut and walnuts.

 

Pour the batter into a buttered bundt pan. Bake for 1 hour until cake tester comes out clean and cake is a deep golden brown.
