Fridge cakes are such a doddle to make. They are sweet, delicious and so dense in nutrients that one of these will keep you going for hours. It’s always a pleasure when good, wholesome, healthy food tastes so naughty. Get stuck in!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
8 tablespoons mixed seeds, (such as flax, pumpkin, sesame or sunflower)
3 handfuls goji berries
1 handful pitted dates
4 tablespoons cacao powder
1 teaspoon desiccated coconut
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon nuts, such as pecans, walnuts or brazil nuts, chopped
1 tablepoon dried fruit, such as dried apricots or cranberries, chopped

Method

  1. Place all the ingredients except the coconut oil, nuts and dried fruit in a food processor, reserving about 1 tablespoon of the seeds and goji berries, and pulse a few times to start creating a stiff, coarse mixture.
  2. Place the coconut oil in a heatproof bowl, then sit the bowl in some freshly boiled water. The oil will melt in a matter of seconds. Add the melted oil to the rest of the ingredients in the food processor. Process the ingredients at full speed until they have combined thoroughly into a firm paste.
  3. Line a 20 cm rectangular cake tin with baking parchment, turn the mixture into the tin and press down firmly to completely fill it. Sprinkle the reserved seeds and goji berries over the top, along with the chopped nuts and fruit, and press down lightly. Place in the fridge for 3 hours, or until set firm. Slice into about 8 even pieces.
