Eggless Dried figs cake

          This is another healthy cake I made for my kid for his evening snack few days ago. I have been trying out egg substitutes and here I have used flax seeds for the first time and really worked well. Flax seeds has lot of nutritional benefits including a lot of fiber. You can see more about it here. The dried figs imparts a natural sweetness to the cake including a nice crunchy texture. Using atta has always been appealing to me. And I added oats too. So how much more healthier can it get? The cake was really very good and delicious.

Yogurt- 1/4 cup
Oil- 1/4 cup
Dried figs- 12-15 numbers
Jaggery syrup- 1 cup(See notes)
Chocolate chips- a handful

Notes- 1. Combine the flax seeds meal and water and stir continously till it becomes a thick slimy fluid.
2. Jaggery syrup I used was a left over after making some Indian sweets. You can add powdered jaggery (1/2 or 1/4 cup) or even brown sugar instead.

In a small bowl, mix atta, oats, baking powder and baking soda.Now combine the jaggery syrup,yogurt ,flax seeds mixture and oil in a large bowl and mix it thoroughly.Add the dried figs puree. Mix well. Now tip in the dry mixture into the wet mixture. Mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips into the batter. Bake at 180c for 40 minutes or till the cake is done. Test by inserting a skewer in the center of the cake to see if the cake is done. Cool and invert the cake in the plate. Slice and serve.
