Apple cinnamon raisin oven cakes is a no-fat vegan recipe substitute for traditional fried pancakes that allows you to also be as innovative as you desire. Preparation time is about 15 minutes, and baking time is about 25 minutes.

Place the peeled bananas, 1 of the apples (washed, cored and quartered), 1/2 cup raisins, and ¼ cup apple juice (a little more if necessary) in the blender container. Set the blender on “high” speed and run until ingredients are smooth.  Then add the remaining 2 washed, quartered, and cored apples and set the blender to "slow" or “chop” speed and chip the apples into small pieces. Set the mixture aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a dry bowl, mix the spelt or whole wheat flour, oat flour or quick oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and mix together. Add 1-½ cups raisins and mix into the flour making sure that each raisin is coated with flour.

Add the banana, apple, raisin mixture and sufficient additional apple juice or water (by rinsing out the blender) into the flour mixture until smooth, but on the thick side so that the mixture won’t flow out on the baking or cookie sheet.

On a lightly oiled or non-stick baking or cookie sheet, spoon out about 2 or 3 heaping tablespoons of the mixture for each cake. Optional: Arrange pecan halves on top for decoration and added flavor.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F. for 25 minutes or until golden brown. When the Oven Cakes are firm but still springy to the touch, they should be done. The first time you make them, you might want to check the bottoms to make sure they are not burning.

These Oven Cakes may be served with Maple Syrup, Apple Sauce, Banana – Date Syrup (see our recipe), or your favorite topping. Oven Cakes are also good eaten like a cookie.

Serve and Enjoy!

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!
