I LOVE cherry bakewells; they remind me of spending the summer and eating lots of my cake with my Gran! On that note, I just had to make a healthier alternative!

Serves 12

Preparation time 1 hour

Cooking time None!

Ingredients

  • 130g of dried dates,
  • 100g of oats,
  • 70g of raw honey (or sweetener of choice),
  • 40g of chia seeds,
  • 100g of fresh cherries,
  • 100g of maple syrup (you could also use more honey),
  • Almond extract,
  • 50g each of almond and coconut flour.

Method:

  1. Using Clingfilm, line 12 holes in a muffin tray!
  2. Start by making your chia jam; simply mix together the cherries and 20g of the sweetener and then pop in the microwave for 1 minute. Now mash the cherries with a fork before mixing in the chia seeds. Leave this mix to gel whilst you do the other stages.
  3. Now make the base; in your blender, pop in the dates, oats and 50g of the sweetener and blend until well combined.
  4. Using a teaspoon, put a generous teaspoon in each of the 12 muffin holes before levelling them out. Pop the tray in the fridge.
  5. Now, to make the frangipane layer, in a mixing bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, 100g of syrup and the almond extract. Do this until it is almost dough like in texture; you may need to add some water.
  6. Take your bases out of the fridge, spread over the frangipane and then flatten it out. Get your chia jam and spread a layer of this over the top!
  7. ENJOY!
  8. Store in the fridge!
