Hello Beautiful People,

I have a quick and easy Paleo Recipe for you guys, it’s hands down the nicest thing I’ve made. I was delighted with how it turned out. I made it on a whim last Saturday evening. I know baking on a Saturday night, calm down Zoe! This whole dry January thing has me a changed woman πŸ™‚

I feel I should explain the choice of a rather odd combination of flavours for this recipe. Basically my Aunty (and now my lovely cousin) both make this amazing Date & Orange cake – it is famous in our family. It’s been known to cause a family fued here and there (I joke, well not really) Anywho, I being the over-indulger that I am, couldn’t justify eating a lot of it after my Christmas food antics. I decided to try and make a healthy version, much to my Mother’s dismay.

This version has no added sugar or carbs and is actually full of fibre and goodness. I really hope you enjoy πŸ™‚

What You Need:

2 x cups ground almonds (add more if mixture seems to wet)

2 x tbsp agave syrup

2 x eggs

1/2 pack of dates (I just used the Tesco own brand)

1 x tbsp flaxseed

2 x tbsp coconut oil

1 x tsp vanilla extract

4 1/2 mandarins (or 2 1/2 full size oranges)

2 x tbsp soda bicarbonate

What you Do:Β 

Preheat your oven to 180

Chop your dates (halves should do it)

Melt your coconut oil

While that is melting, place your ground almonds, flaxseed, soda bicarb & dates into a large mixing bowl – give it an aul stir!

Mix the melted coconut oil, eggs & vanilla extract in a seperate bowl

Add your liquid mixture into the mixing bowl and work it around the bowl

Zest your mandarins / oranges into the mix

Thoroughly stir your mixture (I used the electric mixer to ensure the flavours are spread out – also because I am lazy!)

Once this is done – pop into a baking tray Β – I just lined it with some grease proof paper and a small bit of melted coconut oil.

Into the oven for approx 30 mins, depending on it’s strength.

I always find that when I bake with ground almonds, the mixture tends not to rise as much in comparison to normal flour, however once it tastes good, I don’t mind. As I said this is my favourite Paleo Recipe to date and it’s exactly what I need during a cold, dreary January. Comfort food at it’s finest!

If you try the recipe, be sure to let me know over on Facebook, Insta or Twitter πŸ™‚

All My Love

  1. Hey making this recipe now just wondering am I to use the juice of the oranges or just the zest? It doesn’t mention the juice in the recipe thanks πŸ˜€

      • Hey me again, in the recipe you had 2 tbsp of soda bicarbonate, I assume now it should have been 2 tsp?πŸ˜† Taste is overpowering unfortunately but it wud have been yummy besides that, will try it again tomor πŸ˜€.
