I don’t make cakes very often, mainly as they normally aren’t that healthy and I don’t trust myself not to eat the whole darn thing. This cake is in the middle of the scale, or so I’ve convinced myself! And yes, it really is made with sweet potatoes! Continue reading “Sweet Potato & Walnut Cake”

These are sweets that actually taste like a bounty (Mound bar In the US), but healthy, which for a husband that loves bounties, is a major win.
In a recent race of his, when he was flagging at 30 miles, I sneaked a bounty bar into his bag on a bottle swap at a checkpoint. Apparently, when found, he reacted like he had actually WON the race. Anyway, enough said, it was time to create a healthy version and an alternative race fuel for my boy.
Ok. My picture for this might not be the best, but it really is no reflection on how awesome this tastes. It proper tastes like a full fat, creamy, coconutty, sumptuous cheesecake and the best bit….it involves no cooking. Yes, it’s raw. I’m not a raw food expert (yet) but, the sheer mention of raw food, seems to have people running for the hills, apart from my faithful food testing husband ( or the “monkeyboy” as he is known). Every dish I make seems to be his favourite, like ever.
