Instructions
  1. Peal and cut 4-5 apples into squares and stew them with a tablespoon of water. When cooked remove half a cup of the stewed apples to make the apple crumble topping. (put the remaining stewed apples aside).
  2. Add the half a cup of stewed apple squares to the remaining crumble mixture and mix together and set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius
  4. With the remaining stewed apple (which will be approximately 1 - 1.5 cups of stewed apples) mash and mix until the apple mixtures is a smooth pure texture.
  5. In a new bowl, add the almond flour, eggs, apple pure, honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract and mix with a hand held electric beater or thermomix. When well combined, add the bicarbonate of soda and lemon juice and mix again for a further 20 seconds or so. This will aid as a raising agent.
  6. Add the elderberries to the cake mixture and stir them in with a wooden spoon.
  7. Pour the mixture into muffin papers placed into a muffin tin.
  8. When the mixture is settled in the muffin papers, add the prepared topping ingredients on top and place into the preheated oven.
  9. Muffins will take approximately 25-30 minutes to cook. Keep an eye on them as almond flour is easy to burn (Don’t cook them in too high temperatures).
  10. Remove from the oven when cooked and allow to cool on a cooling tray. Serve with yoghurt, kefir or sourcream
Recipe Notes

Clinical Notes As with all stages of the GAPS diet, baked goods should only make up a small percentage of the diet and that the focus should be on healing nourishing foods, broths and juices.

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 150 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes (no hotter)
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a spoon, followed by massaging the contents in the bowl into a ball. Depending on the consistency of the mixture, add more nut butter or coconut oil if it is too dry or more nut flour if it is too moist. You want to create a cookie dough so keep mixing and squeezing the contents with your hands so that the mixture can be pressed and ready for rolling.
  3. When you have rolled the cookie mixture into a ball on the bench top, push down with the palms of your hands to flatten it a little and then use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a flat surface approximately ¾ cm thick.
  4. Use a cookie cutter of your choice to make Christmas shaped biscuits. We have chosen stars, but you can make ginger bread shapes or any other Christmas shape you prefer.
  5. Place the tray in the preheated oven at no more than 150 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes, keeping a close eye on them to ensure they do not burn. Almond flour burns easily so do not cook any higher than 150 degrees Celsius.
  6. Remove the tray from the oven after 10 minutes and let the cookies cool on the tray before trying to pick them up as they will be soft and may crumble. If left to cool, they will become firmer.

Instructions
Preparation
  1. Boil water and pit dates
Choc Frosting
  1. Pit the dates and warm them in the oven at 150 degrees C for 5-10 minutes to soften them and make them easier to work with. Sometimes it is easier to double the ingredients so that the blades have more to work with and you can save the left overs for another recipe like a cake frosting and store it in the fridge. This frosting will keep for up to 6 weeks.
  2. Place all Choc Frosting ingredients in a high-speed blender or thermomix.
  3. Blend all ingredients in your high-speed blender. The ingredients can be a little finicky to blend, so start at a slow speed and increase speed slowly.
  4. With this step you need to be patient and keep blending on low to medium for a very long time to get a velvety consistency. You will see that this frosting creation is more of an art than a matter of combining ingredients. This is one of those recipes that really makes use of the power of a high-speed blender. If you feel that the blades are just spinning but aren't actually moving all of the frosting around, turn the blender off and make an air pocket down the side of the blender with a spatula to expose the blades. Remove the spatula, replace the lid, and start blending slowly again. You may need to do this several times and add tiny amounts of the water gradually and slowly to get the right consistency. You can achieve a very smooth result if the dates have been warmed gently in the oven for 5-10 minutes and continue to baby the blending process constantly running the spatula down the sides making sure all the ingredients are mixing and blending well. Be sure not to add too much water. You do not want to make the mixture runny, the ideal consistency is a thick paste like a nut butter.
  5. You'll know it's ready when you see no bits of dates in the mixture and all you can taste is velvety chocolate consistency.
  6. This raw chocolate icing is ready to use as soon as you pour it out of the blender When the Cookies have cooled smear the chocolate frosting on the flat side of the cookie with a knife and press another cookie on top squeezing the chock frosting in the middle.  Store in an air tight container. Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Prepare 3-4 dehydrator trays with teflex sheets and put them aside.
  2. Remove the pits from your dates (this is easier when they are at room temperature).
  3. Grind your star anise with a mortar and pestle to a very fine powder (or use anise spice ready prepared).
  4. Add the dates to the food processor or thermomix and add the water and vanilla extract. Process the dates until they form a smooth paste. You may need to run a spoon down the sides a few times to ensure there is an even blend during the processing. When a smooth paste has formed, add the ground anise spice and briefly blend again to ensure it is all mixed evenly.
  5. Add the paste into a piping bag to create long smooth tube like lines. Keep the nozzle end close to the sheets to avoid creating wiggly lines. You may need a little practice first to see what I mean but don't worry if they are not perfect, they are still going to taste great and once they can be smoothed out slightly during the coiling process.
  6. Place the trays in the dehydrator at 115 degrees for approximately 12 hours or until they are ready for shaping but not completely done. Make sure you do not over do it. Some may need to dehydrate less than this and others may need to dehydrate a little longer.
  7. When the liquorice is pliable enough to shape into coils, gently roll them on the dehydrator sheet to un-stick them from the sheet. Start shaping your coils by starting from one end continue to curl them flat on the dehydrator sheet. (They are a little easier to do this if you take the sheet off the tray and lay the sheet flat on the bench).
  8. When the coils are tightly bound, place them onto the dehydrator mesh sheet (without the teflex sheet) to complete the drying process at the same temperature for another 8 hours. The time may differ at times requiring more or less time on different occasions. You know they are ready when they are dry and not sticky.
  9. Don't over dry them to the point that unwinding the coil causes the wheel to break.
  10. Individually wrap your liquorice wheels in baking paper and pin with a staple. If you want to get fancy, you can add your own label and put them in a special bag to give as a special gift made with love.
  11. Alternatively you can make the same recipe in one flat leather slab and cut them with scissors and roll them up. I call these Liquorice Leather Rolls. These take much less time and are easy to wrap and roll. 🙂

Instructions
Biscuit Bottom
  1. Pre-heat oven to 150 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes (no hotter)
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a spoon, followed by massaging all the contents and squeezing the ingredients in your hands where you can feel the mixture starting to stick together and form shape. Depending on the consistency of the mixture, add more nut butter or coconut oil if it is too dry or more nut flour if it is too moist. You want to create a cookie dough so keep mixing and squeezing the contents with your hands so that the mixture can form a big ball ready for making smaller balls.
  3. When you have rolled the cookie mixture into a ball on the bench top, pinch a section of the dough and roll the section into a ball approximately 4cm in width. Continue this until you have 24 balls ready.
  4. Place each ball into mini round cardboard baking cups. These will be used as the mold for the entire cheesecake and they should be 5cm wide measured from the bottom.
  5. Press the first layer with your thumb by pushing the ball down flat to make a base in the bottom of the cup ensureing it reaches all the sides with good coverage.
  6. Place the baking cups onto a baking tray and place the tray in the preheated oven at no more than 150 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes, keeping a close eye on them to ensure they do not burn. Almond flour burns easily so do not cook any higher than 150 degrees Celsius.
  7. Remove the tray from the oven after 10 minutes and let the cookies cool for 5 minutes and then place them in the fridge for 15 minutes to cool whilst you prepare the next layer.
Caramel Cream Filling
  1. After soaking the Midjool dates for 20 minutes, add them to the thermomix or food processor with the remaining caramel Cream filling ingredients except for the gelatin powder and water.
  2. Mix on a medium to high speed to combine all the ingredients to make a smooth sauce like consistency whilst occasionally stopping to wipe down the sides with the spatula to ensure all the ingredients are blended together evenly.
  3. Place the gelatin powder in a small bowl or cup and add the warm water stiring well to make a consistency similar to apple sauce. Add this to the mixture in the thermomix and blend well.
  4. Remove the baking cups from the fridge and add a spoonful of the mixture until all the ingredients is evenly dispersed in each cup.
  5. With the back of a teaspoon, level out the cream centre so that it is reasonably flat and place the cups in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
Nut Sprinkles
  1. Place the nuts in the thermomix or blender to chop into the size you prefer to add as a nut sprinkle layer. I like to make ours a little bit chunky. You can also chop them if you wrap them inside a tea towel and bang them with a wooden rolling pin.
  2. Sprinkle the nut mix evenly over the top of the coconut cream filling until distributed evenly in all 24 cups.
Chocolate Top
  1. Simmer some water on a low heat in a saucepan and place a glass bowl over the simmering water. I like to use a pyrex jug (size measures 4 cups) for this as it works nicely to pour the ingredients later.
  2. Add the cacao butter to the glass bowl and melt the cacao butter completely. (CAUTION: Keep the heat at a low temperature so that the steam does not cause any water residue within the glass bowl and make sure all your utensils and materials do not have any water on them because any water contaminating the mixture will cause lumps and clumps and spoil the smooth chocolate result).
  3. Once melted, turn off the heat and add the cocao powder gradually whilst stirring continuously with a bone dry whisk until mixed well with no lumps. Add honey and vanilla essence and continue to whisk. Let the chocoloate topping cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Pour chocolate mixture over the top and remember to allow some of the nuts to be exposed at the tops. This gives it character and encourages you not to over fill the top layer. Aim not to make the top layer too thick or it will make it difficult to bite into.
  5. Refrigerate for 4 - 6 hour to fully set.
  6. When all ingredients have set, you can tear the cardboard paper cups and slowly remove the cheesecake medallions from the cup casing to expose them for serving. I recommend you keep them in the baking cups until you are ready to serve or eat.

Instructions
Cococnut Cream Filling
  1. Mix all coconut meat ingredients in a saucepan on medium heat until all ingredients is well combined and melted and then mix in a food processor to grind the dessicated coconut a little finer.
  2. Line a 8×6 inch dish with bleach free baking paper and pour the ingredients into the dish and push down flat.
  3. Place the coconut meat mixture dish into the freezer and leave for 4 hours or overnight.
  4. When the mixture has set hard, pull the sides of the baking paper up to pull out the coconut mixture out of the dish and place it on a chopping board. With a long sharp knife, carefully cut the coconut fudge middle meat into even squares.
  5. Place the squares into a container with a lid back into the freezer for preparation for the chocolate coating step.
Choc Coating
  1. Simmer some water on a low heat in a saucepan and place a glass bowl over the simmering water. Add the cacao butter to the glass bowl and melt the cacao butter completely. (CAUTION: Keep the heat at a low temperature so that the steam does not cause any water residue within the glass bowl and make sure all your utensils and materials do not have any water on them because any water contaminating the mixture will cause lumps and clumps and spoil the smooth chocolate result).
  2. Once melted, turn off the heat and add the cocao powder gradually whilst stirring continuously with a bone dry whisk until mixed well with no lumps. Add honey and vanilla essence and continue to whisk.
  3. When the mixture is lovely and smooth it is ready for the coconut meat fudge dipping.
Coating with chocolate
  1. Take the chopped coconut meat squares from the freezer and place one square on top of a fork.
  2. Dip the square into the chocolate so that it covers only half of the slice. (you can cover the entire slice if you want to and this can be done by dropping it into the choc mixture and then lifting it with the fork from the bottom and let the excess chocolate drip off.
  3. The cold coconut squares will start to harden the outer layer of chocolate as you lay the squares down onto some bleach free baking paper on a tray to set.
  4. Place the choc covered squares into the fridge for 10 minutes to set. These are reasonably stable at room temperature.
Recipe Notes

OPTIONAL: You may wish to add a teaspoon of organic mint flavour to the mixture if desired.

Mint Cheescake Layer
  1. Soak cashews in water for 20 minutes and then rince them and drain off the water.
  2. Add Cashews to the thermomix or strong mixer and mix on a high speed to break down the nuts into a flour like consistency.
  3. Add coconut oil and coconut milk to the mixture and continue to blend whilst occasionally stopping to wipe down the sides with the spatula to ensure all the ingredients are blended together evenly.
  4. Add honey, vanilla essence, mint flavour and mint leaves. The mint leaves are optional because they do require a lot of blending and pulsing to break them down into a paste along with the nut and coconut mixture. They do contribute slightly to the flavour and add some colour.
  5. If you wish to add more colour, add the spirulina powder.
  6. Continue to mix and blend whilst occasionally stopping to wipe down the sides with the spatula to ensure all the ingredients are blended together evenly. Keep blending until you establish a nice creamy like texture.
  7. Remove the baking cups from the fridge and add a spoonful of the mixture until all the ingredients is evenly dispersed in each cup.
  8. With the back of a teaspoon, level out the mint layer so that it is reasonably flat and place the cups in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Coconut Cream Layer
  1. Mix all coconut meat ingredients in a saucepan on medium heat until all ingredients is well combined and melted
  2. Remove from stove and mix ingredients in a food processor to grind the desiccated coconut a little finer.
  3. Add a spoonful of the mixture
  4. With the back of a teaspoon, level out the mint layer so that it is reasonably flat and place the cups in the freezer for 15 minutes.

  4. Remove the baking cups from the freezer and pour chocolate mixture over the top until all the ingredients is evenly dispersed in each cup to provide good coverage as the top layer. Try not to make the top layer too thick to make it easier to bite into the cheesecake.
  5. Refrigerate for 1hour to set.
  6. When all ingredients have set, you can tear the cardboard paper cups and slowly remove the cheesecake medallions from the cup casing to expose them for serving. I recommend you keep them in the baking cups until you are ready to serve or eat.

Instructions
Equipment
  1. 2 x stainless steel round spring-form cake pans
  2. Food processor or thermomix
  3. Saucepan
Cake Mixture Instructions
  1. Place pitted dates in a saucepan on the stove with a tablespoon of ghee and heat on a low temperature until they soften. If you have a thermomix, you can do this for 5-7 minutes
  2. Place softened date mixture in the blender (or thermomix) and blend dates into a paste. Add remaining ingredients and blend at a high speed until the mixture resembles a chocolate cake mixture. The mixture should hold a firm smooth consistency
  3. Baste the spring-form cake pans with ghee or coconut oil and pour the mixture into the pans. Cook for 40 – 50 minutes at 150◦C
  4. Test the cake with a fork before you take it out of the oven and when ready, remove cakes from the oven and take them out of the spring-form pans as soon as you can. Let the cakes cool on a cooling rack
  5. You can place any filling in the middle or on the top of the cake with a little creativity. The berry filling works well as a middle filling for the cakes and the top of the cake works well with sour cream and fresh berries. Alternatively, you can try the cake icing below and use it for the top layer with fresh berries on top as shown in the picture.
Filling Instructions
  1. Combine berries, apples, lemon juice and honey in a saucepan and bring ingredients to boiling point, then turn the temperature down and continue cooking the mixture slowly on a low heat. Stir frequently as it thickens
  2. Place the ingredients in the fridge to set for 4 hours
Chocolate Icing Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender. If possible, let them sit in there for a few minutes to soften the dates a little bit.
  2. Blend all ingredients in your high-speed blender. The ingredients can be a little tricky to blend, so start at a slow speed and increase speed slowly
  3. Keep blending for a very long time to get a velvety consistency. This is one of those recipes that really makes use of the power of a high-speed blender. If you feel that the blades are just spinning but aren't actually moving all of the icing around, turn the blender off and make an air pocket down the side of the blender with a spatula to expose the blades. Remove the spatula, replace the lid, and start blending slowly again.
  4. You'll know it's ready if there are no bits of dates and all you can taste is velvety chocolate goodness. This raw chocolate icing is ready to use as soon as you pour it out of the blender

Instructions
  1. Mash bananas and place them into a bowl
  2. Add eggs, almond flour and vanilla essence to the bowl and blend briefly with an electric beater until smooth
  3. Add dried blueberries and hand mix
  4. Heat frying pan on a low heat to ensure you do not burn the nut flour and spoon small pancakes into the fry pan
  5. You will notice some fine bubbles on the top indicating that they may be ready to flip. Use an egg lifter to flip and lightly cook the other side. If the pan is too hot they will burn
  6. You may need some practice in making these before you fry the perfect pancake but they are well worth the effort
