For those of you who have been following my page for a while you will know that I get a fair bit of trolling here on my little page about what I feed my kids and I'm often criticised for how I deprive them of 'treats'. To me this is amusing because I truly believe that real treats are not things that contain additives, preservatives and ingredients that you can't pronounce. Treats can be made with a nourishing twist that slow blood sugar fluctuation and have enough good fat in to satiate so kids only need a small amount.

Our treats are real treats. Real ingredients.  Real Food...

Okay so if you've never used Tahini before - it's made from sesame seeds and is super high protein and filled with lots of healthy fats! It's in both major supermarkets in the health food section.

My boys loved these and I'm going to cut them a slice for their lunchbox tomorrow. This is nut and dairy free and also contains no grains. This cake has a peanut butter flavour from the tahini.   Super simple and super yummy. I hope you enjoy! Alisa xx

Ingredients

 1 small sweet potato - skins on (roughly 200 g)
 1 cup cup unhulled organic tahini (find in the health food section of your supermarket!)
 ½ cup organic coconut sugar
 3 organic eggs
  cup raw cacao powder (not cocoa powder - spelt similarly but v different things!)
 ¼ cup cup pure maple syrup (different from maple 'flavoured' syrup)
 2 tbsp coconut flour
 ½ tsp bicarb of soda
 ½ tsp baking soda
 1 tbsp vanilla bean powder or vanilla bean extract
 1 tbsp coconut oil
 1 pinch of sea salt
 Chocolate Chips (Use whatever ones you like here - I used raw cacao nibs and my boys found them a little bitter so next time I'll try real chocolate chips - just make sure they are free of additives) Or if you don't have chocolate chips this would work with sultanas too! (just make sure they are sulphite free!)

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 180 degrees - you want oven super hot for this recipe!

2

Throw the sweet potato in your thermomix and blitz until fine of grate with a grater.

3

Add tahini into you thermomix or food processor and mix until combined (if the tahini contains an oily top throw that in too! Oil/fat is good in this recipe!)

4

Add the remaining ingredients except coconut flour and chocolate chips and whizz to combine

5

Add coconut flour and quickly mix then stir through chocolate chips by hand saving some to sprinkle on top

6

Pour into a  shallow tin lined with baking paper (I prefer unbleached 'if you care' baking paper')

7

Pour mix into lined tin using spatula to spoon in and sprinkle chocolate chips and a little coconut sugar on top

8

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes until cooked in centre - Don't overbake or it will shrink and be dry.

Ice if you wish!
