Kale Cake

This is one of the first recipes I created from scratch, borne out of a desire for a healthy snack. It started off with a Kale Smoothie:


1 frozen banana

1 cup of coconut water

2-3 tbsp almonds

blended together and to make it a cake, add:

2 tbsp Quinoa flour (or some flax-seed flour…)


sunflower seeds

+ anything you like or any supplement you want to hide.

I put it into  a shallow dish and baked it at 160 degrees for about 30 min or until the cake is firm. It proved very yummy with

coconut Yoghurt on top, toasted berries and slightly warmed frozen organic berry mix, which had these gorgeous tiny forest strawberries in it… they taste heavenly. Enjoy and create your own!

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
