Share this recipe
3/4 Cup Dates, pitted
1 tsp Baking Powder
2 Tbsp Grass Fed Butter
1 Cup Coconut Sugar or Honey
1/2 Cup Almond Meal
1/2 cup Coconut flour
Pinch of salt
1 tsp All Spice
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
Caramel Pecan Sauce
1 Tbsp Grass fed butter
1/2 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
1/4 Cup Pecans
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
Add baking powder, dates and 1 Cup of boiling water to a bowl to soak for 15 minutes
Using a hand held mixer or a really strong arm whisk combining the butter and the honey or sugar until it resembles a thick sauce/ paste (this is called creaming the butter)- should take 3-5 minutes.
Add the dates to the mix and stir, then add eggs in one at a time, waiting for each to combine before adding the next
In a large bowl combine the flour, almond meal, salt and all spice
Fold the egg mix into the dry ingredients and finish of with the lemon juice
Grease medium muffin trays with extra coconut oil or butter, spoon mix in and pop in the oven for 15-18 minutes (should be still slightly soft in the centre)
Meanwhile in a small saucepan on medium heat cook the honey and butter until it starts to bubble and change a golden colour, then add the coconut milk, take off the heat and continue to stir until smooth. Add in the pecans and spoon over date cakes to finish… goes amazing with coconut milk ice cream too… just saying ?
