My Warm Sticky Date Pudding And Coconut-Caramel Sauce
(Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free and almost guilt-free ;P).
For those who don't know me well in the kitchen or know my eating habits, I love using organic and healthy ingredients (e.g. super foods) as much as possible…and I never keep any sugar in my pantry. So if you ever come for a visit, expect to be served with a healthier alternative if you have tea or coffee (e.g. honey, agave syrup, stevia).
1 cup organic buckwheat flour1/4 cup organic coconut flour
2/3 cup of boiling hot water
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tbsp organic chia seeds
1 teaspoon baking powder
15 dates, pits removed (soak 10 and the save the rest to add as tiny chunks into the final mixture)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
4 tbsp organic agave syrup or honey
2 free-range eggs
50g organic extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tbsp organic agave syrup or honey
160ml organic coconut cream
1 tbsp nutmeg
1 tbsp cinnamon
Naturally Sweetened Greek Yogurt
Step 1Pre heat oven to 180C / 350F and line ramekins or foil mini cases , smear coconut oil or butter around the sides.
Soak the chia seeds and pitted dates with the baking soda and water for 5 minutes.
Combine butter, coconut oil, agave syrup or honey and the chia & date mixture in a food processor and 15 sec until well combined.
Pour eggs, vanilla extract, flours and baking powder and further process until well combined.
Lastly slowly fold in the extra chopped dates and walnuts to mixture.
Spoon mixture evenly into the foil cases or ramekins and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Test by pricking the centre with a toothpick, if it comes out clean then it’s done. Allow to slightly cool down.
Put butter, coconut cream, spices and agave syrup or honey into a shallow pan.
Step 2Allow to simmer and bubble lightly on medium heat for about 5-7 minutes until mixture has thickened but still runny, and color has darkened.
Step 3Remove the pudding from ramekins or cases into a serving plate, slowly drizzle the warm coconut caramel on top. Serve a dollop of yogurt on the side.
