INGREDIENTS

-       1 cup coconut sugar

-       1 cup natural almond butter

-       2 tsp pure vanilla extract

-       1/4 cup plus 8-10 tbsp unsweetened almond milk

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 170 C / 350 F. Line an 8x8-inch square pan with parchment paper.

 

Mix together coconut sugar, almond butter and vanilla. In another bowl whisk together oat flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the oat flour mixture to the almond butter mixture. Then add almond milk and the chocolate chips (leave a few for the top).

 

Transfer the dough into the lined pan and use your fingers to press evenly into the bottom. Add some chocolate chips on top at the end.

Curried Spinach Nibbles

*
Ingredients

2 lbs fresh spinach
1 1/4 cups almond flour
1 teaspoon salt
a hearty dash of fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
3 eggs
1/2 cup finely ground parmesan
1 cup full fat organic yogurt
3/4 cup spring onions, chopped
1 tablespoon ghee
option: crème fraiche to garnish

*
Method
Set your oven to 375F.

Wash the spinach and place in a large pot over medium heat. Cook until wilted, then drain in a colander. Set aside.

In a bowl combine the almond flour, salt, pepper, baking soda and curry. In a separate bowl mix together the parmesan, yogurt, eggs and chopped onion. Then add to the bowl of dry ingredients.

Place spinach into a kitchen towel and squeeze out as much water as you can. Then chop the spinach and add it to the batter.

Line your baking dish with parchment paper, and place in the oven for a moment. Add the ghee and turn the pan so the ghee melts and spreads all over the parchment lining. Pour the batter into the baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes. Like a cake, it is done when an inserted wooden stick comes out clean. As an option, turn the oven to broil and brown the top for 1 minute. Be careful not to over-cook, as it is best moist and springy.

Once out of the oven, allow it to cool slightly, then cut into squares and serving. Optionally, top each square with a dollop of crème fraiche. A spot of dijon mustard, and a slice of lemon are good too.
