Sharing these Gluten-free Apple Crumb Cakes with a homemade Maple Glaze. Made with no refined sugar, dairy or eggs!
At first, I was planning to make some apple crumb muffins for you guys.
But then when I took out the muffin tray, I saw my mini loaf pan just calling my name. As you guys know, that tray has pretty much become an absolute staple in my kitchen and I use it a lot more than I ever thought I would.
Now let’s make these Gluten-Free Apple Crumb Cakes…
Oh, and did I mention a maple glaze it involved?! Because DAYUM did this glaze come out 100x better than I thought it would.
Ok ok so the base off this recipe is an apple cake made with ingredients like applesauce, non-dairy milk, rolled oats, almond flour and a few other basic ingredients. But then I snuck in my not-so-expected ingredient, collagen!
At this point you guys know I am all about the collagen hype. It is a part of my everyday life and has been for over 4 years now. I love that it adds extra protein to things and a boost for my hair, skin and nails. I chat all about my love for collagen and Vital Proteins in this blog post too. It gives the full run down on baking with it and why I use it and how you can too.
So I use the Madagascar Vanilla Collagen Latte, which to be honest is the most delicious addition to this. It adds a little extra somethin’ to the cake and the vanilla flavor is such a go-to for my baking needs or even just adding to oatmeal.
