Prep Time


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.

  2. Make the puddings: Place the oat flour, ground almonds, coconut sugar, baking powder and spices in a bowl.

  3. Place the dates + their soaking liquid plus the flaxseed mixture, apple puree, vanilla and milk into your Ninja Kitchen Nutri Ninja blender and whizz up until smooth.

  4. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and mix to combine and form a batter. Spoon this between 3-4 150ml greased pudding tins, to reach the top.

  5. Bake for 30 minutes until golden and firm to the touch.

  6. Meanwhile heat the coffee, milk, spices and maple syrup in a pan. Whisk together the cornflour with 1-2 tablespoons water to form a paste, then pour in and keep whisking for a few minutes on a medium heat. The sauce should thicken nicely.

  7. Leave the puddings to stand for 10 minutes once out of the oven then tip upside down and pour some of the sauce over to cover. Top with walnut pieces and extra chopped dates and enjoy!

My love of healthy food was originally inspired by my commitment to fitness and wellbeing. But that's not to say I don't like a treat from time to time.

Despite being labelled 'healthy', many of the recipes I came across relied heavily on processed sugar and fat - which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands.
