Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 9-12
 
What You'll Need
  • 10 pitted Medjool dates (blitzed in food processor with a wee bit of hot water until a paste is formed)
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp. coconut flour
  • ¾ raw cacao powder
  • ½ c. melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. real vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 c. sunflower meal (pre-food-processor blitzed sunflower seeds to resemble flour)
  • ¾ tsp. g-free baking soda
  • ½ tsp. pink Himalayan sea salt
How You Do
  1. Preheat over to 350 F and grease an 8x8 baking dish with coconut oil
  2. Whizz sunflower seeds in food processor until a rough flour-like consistency is formed (like almond flour), remove and set aside.
  3. Whizz medjool dates with a wee smidge of boiling water in the food processor until paste is formed.
  4. Add coconut flour, cacao powder, melted coconut oil, vanilla, baking soda, salt, eggs and whizz/pulse again until mixed (stopping to scrape down sides as needed).
  5. Pop in the oven for 35-40 minutes depending on the heat of your oven.
  6. These need to set for about 20 minutes after baking as they are gooey and I've found that all paleo baked good need time to set as they continue to cook a bit in doing so. Enjoy!
