It's almost time for Passover, eight days of celebration for the Jewish community. The story of Passover is one of freedom and independence and is celebrated with an elaborate dinner, called a seder.
Governed by religious dietary restrictions, the seder excludes, among other items, flour and leaveners. That means your usual celebration cake just won't do. Instead whip up flourless treats and sweet mousses and end your seder with a touch of indulgence. And some matzoh dipped in chocolate.
Moist and delicious, this cake has a spiced orange flavour, reminiscent of an exquisite cup of tea. We used blood orange olive oil here, but you can use plain and add the zest of an organic orange if you can't find a good co-pressed olive oil. Enjoy with some whipped coconut cream or a scoop of refreshing fruit sorbet.
These cookies are not too sweet, decadent and (you've been warned), mildly addictive. Virgin coconut oil takes the place of butter, and shredded, unsweetened coconut gives the cookie an extra, tropical touch. Puffed amaranth adds to these nutrient dense ingredients- it's a cookie that's almost like a healthy snack. You're welcome!
