Yields1 ServingDifficultyBeginner
 1 cup Changing Habits Dates, soaked in hot water for no less then 5 minutes
 90g coconut oil
 2 organic, free range eggs
 1 vanilla pod, scraped or 1 Tbsp homemade vanilla essence
 1 cup almond meal
 1/2 cup tapioca flour

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

2

Start soaking the dates in hot water.

3

In a large bowl, add sugar and coconut oil and mix together thoroughly with a whisk.

4

Add eggs and mix thoroughly again. Add the vanilla, tapioca flour, almond meal, ginger and cinnamon.

5

Pulse the dates and cacao melts in a food processor leaving them both still slightly chunky.

6

Add the date and cacao mix into the other ingredients and mix well together with spoon.

7

Use a little coconut oil to line a muffin tray or cake tin (or whatever you would like your dessert shape to be!) and spoon the mixture out.

8

Place the tray into the oven and cook for approximately 30 minutes (will need less time for the muffins), however keep checking by putting a skewer into the cake/muffin, if the skewer comes out clean, then it is cooked.

    We have made these a number of times now, sometimes adding in sultanas. Simple and they freeze well too.
