  • Food processor, such as Magimix


  • 500 g sweet potatoes (Diced and steamed - no need to peel)
  • 200 g pitted dates
  • 75 g coconut oil (at room temperature)
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 50 g cacao (Or replace with Carob if Cacao hasn't been reintroduced - in which case, reduce the amount of maple syrup as Carob is sweeter)

Flours - option 2. Paleo

  • 175 g ground almonds If reintroduced


  • ½ cup sour cherries (or nuts of your choice, if reintroduced)

  • Add the sweet potatoes with the dates to the food processor and process until soft
  • Add all the other ingredients (apart from the sour cherries)

  • Fold the sour cherries by hand into the batter (it'll be quite a dense batter)

  • Baked at 180-190°C for 45-50 mins
