Orange pie – super healthy and anti-cancer?!

It is not an ordinary, simple pie. It is super healthy and suppose to help preventing or fighting cancer. 

In this recipe you use whole oranges with peel which gives bitter taste to the pie. But we use the peel for a reason – the flavonoids in orange peel have the potential to inhibit the RLIP76 protein, which is linked to cancer and obesity.

Ingredients:

  • 3 small oranges (organic as we do not peel them)
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (can be coconut oil also)
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 80g xylitol
  • 200g almond flour
  • 50g banana flour
  • 4 tbsp shredded coconut 
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Cook the oranges till they’re soft – it took around 1,5 hour in my case.

Blend the oranges and mix them with all the ingredients. 

Step 3

Grease the baking tray with olive oil or coconut oil. Bake for about 35 minutes, 180 degrees C.
