  • 7 dates (or 90g)
  • 2 ripe bananas (or 150g)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 150 g almond flour
  • 10 g baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 30 g cocoa powder
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 7-10 walnuts crushed


  1. Preheat the oven at 180º.

  2. Remove the stone from the dates and place them in a bowl with boiled water for 2-3 minutes, until softened.

  3. Add the dates, bananas, cinnamon and water to a food processor, blend until creamy texture.

  4. In another bowl, mix the almond flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder.

  5. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, then whip in the creamy date-banana mix; mix well.

  6. Add the bowl with dry contents and add the crushed walnuts. Mix well.

  7. Take a previously greased or baking-sheet covered loaf tin and add the cake mix. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes and then check with a fork or thin pin by pinching. If it comes out with mix on it, bake for another 1-2 minutes then check again. Once the pin/fork comes out clean, it is ready!
