YES! My favourite dessert – sticky date pudding – now has a healthier makeover. I’ve subbed out the butter, loaded it with fibrous foods (good for your gut) and made the recipe so easy. You’ll love it.
+ Whole gluten-free flour if you can’t eat gluten. Though, I haven’t tried it yet, I am assuming it’ll work. If you do try it, I’d love an update and this I can amend this.
+ If you can’t eat eggs, flax eggs should work here instead.
+ Light extra virgin olive oil refers to a ‘light’ flavour. It doesn’t mean fewer calories. You can use stronger ‘robust’ flavoured olive oil if you like (I did, and it wasn’t really noticeable).
+ Dried dates are cheaper than fresh, that’s why I used them here. Make sure they’re pitted. You can use fresh dates if you prefer.
+ This recipe should freeze well!
+ Your friends and family won’t notice that this is a ‘healthier’ recipe. That’s the point! You can brag about its health credentials after they tell you it’s delicious 😉

+ Full disclaimer: I can’t bake! I’m crap at it. But even I can manage this beauty.
