The magical moment when the air turns pleasantly cooler, enjoy the fabulous colours of summer nights: clear skies mean incredible stars, and it’s still warm enough to lounge, or walk, or dream…


 

Baking without refined sugar 

Removing refined sugar from your diet does not mean abstinence from all things sweet!

Whilst Debbie can’t tailor the recipes on a blog to every individual’s conditions and body the way she does with her clients, she does hand-select the recipes based on healthy ingredients put together in the most inspiring ways. Inspiration is the best step towards embracing genuine nourishment!

You MUST make sure that all ingredients you use are compatible with your own individual medical conditions, medications, allergies and goals.

Organic Ingredients

For the filling:

  • 40g almond butter
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • pinch salt
  • 20g chopped nuts (macadamia is nice)

 

Chocolate:

  • 20g raw cacao butter
  • 3 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • pinch salt

 

12 dates (medjool are the softest and tastiest but you can use regular dried ones too)

 

Method

If you have brought medjool dates take the pip out and set aside.

Mix the almond butter, honey, desiccated coconut and salt in a bowl. Finely chopped the nuts and mix in.

Make the chocolate sauce by melting the raw cacao butter in a bain marie on a low heat.

Mix in the raw cacao powder, honey and salt.

Fill the dates with a small amount of almond butter mixture. Don’t over fill as you wont be able to cover them in chocolate.

Cover the dates with chocolate and put onto a lined baking tray and put into the fridge.

Take out and dip again and sprinkle with nuts.

Keep in the fridge and serve with a cup of tea or coffee as a tea time or after dinner treat.
