Healthy Sticky Date Pudding Recipe Gluten Free Dairy Free

Ingredients used:

As with all of our Live Love Nourish recipes like this one, in our recipe books, recipe membership and Online Program, we use whole food ingredients.

For the caramel: a simple combination of medjool dates and coconut milk. Use plump and juicy medjool dates or otherwise pre-soak harder dates in hot water for 5-10 mins to soften. Use full fat, premium canned coconut milk for a creamy result. See recipe notes for additional ingredients you can use to add your own twist.

For the healthy sticky date pudding: we again use medjool dates to compliment the caramel and naturally sweeten the recipe. To make this recipe gluten free friendly we use a flour mix including almond meal, tapioca and coconut flour. Together with the other ingredients this produces a fluffy result.  Instead of an egg, to help the recipe all come together we use nut butter.

Ingredient swaps:

Whilst the recipe is gluten free, dairy free, egg free, dairy free, paleo friendly and vegan friendly already, here are some alternative ingredient swaps if you have a nut allergy or sensitivity.
For nut free, instead of almond meal, use sunflower seed meal. To make sunflower seed meal pulse sunflower seeds in a blender to form a texture that resemebles almond meal. You can also purchase this from some health food stores or online.
For nut free, instead of nut butter you can use sunflower seed butter. You could also use half of the amount tahini and half of the amount sunflower seed butter. The tahini does add a slight bitterness but can easily balance out when served with the caramel sauce.
To make this recipe nut free and seed free, use tigernut flour (made from a tuber, not actually a nut) instead of almond meal and tahini instead of nut butter.
