  • 3/4 c canola oil
  • 1/2 c applesauce
  • 3/4 c chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 tbs pure vanilla extract
  • 2 c all-purpose flour (message me for a perfect gluten-free flour blend)

  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 Tbs ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 8oz cream cheese
  • 3-1/2 c confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 c sweet butter, softened
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c chopped pecans or walnuts
