Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

To prepare the oat flour, place the rolled oats in the container of your blender and run at high speed until the oats are finely chopped (usually takes only a few seconds).

Combine spelt flour, oat flour, cinnamon, and baking soda (dry ingredients) in a large mixing bowl.

Peel and coarsely dice 3 plantains. (Peeled plantains may be cut lengthwise into quarters and then slices into bite size pieces.) Add pieces to flour bowl and mix well, making sure that the plantain pieces are separated and coated with the flour mixture.

Pour the apple juice into a blender container. Wash and core 2 of the apples, and peel 2 of the plantains, and add them to the apple juice. Run blender until ingredients are liquefied. Then add to dry ingredients. Mix well. Oven cakes batter should be a little stiff. If batter is too stiff, add a small amount of apple juice or water.

On coated baking sheet, spoon and shape mixture into cakes. Wash and core remaining 2 apples. Cut into wedges and press them slightly into tops of cakes, along with pecan halves. (See photo.)

Bake in oven at 350 degrees F. for approximately 30 minutes.

Serve plain or with desired topping, such as maple syrup. The plate may also be garnished with other fresh fruit, such as the kiwi slices shown in the photo.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
