This recipe for Spiced Oat Almond Gluten-free Cake is perfect in this parfait. Vegan GF gum-freeJump to Recipe
I whipped up a cake on the day before Valentines day, with oats, rice flour and almonds and was wondering about what to do with it. Since hubbs is used to cakes and cookies every other day. So I made a parfait. Though it didnt look or feel too fancy or elaborate, but it surely won hubbs over 😉
