chopped cashew nuts to decorate, (optional)

Fresh Cherries for topping

Preheat your oven to 400.

Add chickpeas, coconut flour, cacao powder, cinnamon, baking powder, almond butter, maple syrup and almond milk to a processor, then blend until smooth.

Pour batter into a cake pan, then top with apple slices, cashews and bake for 45 minutes.
