Here is the recipe - sorry if you felt like you had to jump through some social media hoops! I promise this recipe is entirely worth it :)
1 large orange
1/2 cup candied ginger
1 1/2 cups pitted dates
1 cup cranberries
1/2 cup walnuts
2 cups almond meal
1 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup honey
2 tbsp molasses
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tsp sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon each ground ginger, cloves and allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup coconut oil
*1/2 cup plain full fat yogurt (OPTIONAL! If you are a strict paleo use 1/2 cup applesauce and add a 1/2 cup more almond flour)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Prepare 8 x 8 inch baking pan by coating lightly with oil and dusting with flour. Set aside.
Cut orange in half. Squeeze juice from orange and reserve in 1 cup measuring cup. To orange juice add molasses and vanilla. Add enough yogurt to make one full cup. Set aside.
Place orange rinds in bowl of food processor along with ginger, dates, cranberries and walnuts. Pulse until chunky paste results. Set aside.
In medium bowl measure flours, baking soda and powder, sea salt and spices. Mix together well. Set aside.
In large bowl combine eggs, honey and coconut oil. Beat well for 3 minutes. Add yogurt/orange juice mixture and beat another 3 minutes.
Add flour mixture to egg mixture and beat until smooth. Fold in processed fruit and nut mixture and gently mix until just combined.
Pour mixture into prepared 8 x 8 baking pan.
Bake at 350 for 45 to 55 minutes. Test cake with toothpick to make sure it is baked all the way through.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Cut into squares and serve. Delicious!!
