And tomorrow we will film me making them for the new series of Christina Cooks. So excited. Soooo according to the app Aging Booth, this is how I will look when I’m 96. Yikes! Ever done this? New recipe alert!!!! I’m missing the lemons of the Amalfi Coast so I bought some lemons and baked. Here’s what I did. 
Lemon Pistachio Cakes
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 T coconut sugar
Juice and finely grated zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
1 1/2 cups sprouted whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
spring or filtered water
2/3 cup chopped pistachios

Preheat oven to 350oF. Lightly oil a mini bundt pan (or standard muffin tin). Whisk together oil, coconut sugar, lemon juice and zest, vanilla and salt. Mix in flour, baking soda and powder. Slowly add water while mixing to create a spoonable cake batter (about 3/4 c water). Fold in pistachios but do not over mix. Spoon evenly into prepared pan and bake for 15-17 minutes or until the tops of the cakes bounce back to the touch. 
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. 
I glaze mine with Suzanne’s Specialties Rasperry Rice Nectar. 
Hope you like them!
