Saturday my baby boy turned 1. ONE. Oh my god, where has the time gone? So funny to see how different a day can be a year apart. Still remember him being born like it was yesterday and the intense love and joy I felt. That intense love and joy has never gone away and seeing him so happy devouring his cake was literally the best thing ever!

This recipe is from Dutchie Rens Koes, from her first cookbook Powerfood. The cake contains no sugar, so it's perfectly ok to give to your little ones!

What you'll need:

For the base
- Walnuts 200 gr
- Dates 400 gr
- Raw cocoa nibs 125 gr
- Unsweetened vanilla powder 1 teaspoon
- Pinch of salt

For the cake
- Coconut grain 500 gr
- Cocoapowder 250 gr
- Cocoabutter 4 pieces (20 gr)
- Coconut oil 2 tbsp
- Maple syrup 200 ml
- Unsweetened vanilla powder 1 teaspoon
- Pinch of salt

What you need to do:
- Start by grinding your walnuts and dates in a blender (add the dates bit by bit(
- Add the cocoa nibs, vanilla powder and salt en mix everything together
- Make a solid 'dough' of the mixture and put it in a cake tin (press firmly)
- Mix the coconut grain in a blender until creamy and add all the other ingredients together in a bowl
- Place the mixture on top of the base and put in the fridge for 1 hour (or if longer, make sure to take it out of the fridge on time. Like 5/6 hours before)
