  • 1 cup almond meal/flour
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 1 ½ cups Medjool dates
  • 3 teaspoons molasses
  • 1 ½ inch ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • pinch of black pepper
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 ½ cups sweet potato puree (1 large baked sweet potato)
  • cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour


  • Line an 8×8” baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Place the crust ingredients in the food processor and blend until well combined.
  • Remove the lid and gather some of the crust into your hand, squeezing it to form a tight ball in your palm. If the crust crumbles and doesn’t stick, you’ll need to blend it some more or add another date.
  • Pour the crumble into the baking pan, and press it firmly to the bottom to create a tight crust. Now you can make the filling.
  • Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste, and add more maple syrup if necessary.
  • Spoon the filling into the crust and smooth down with the back of a large spoon or rubber spatula.
  • Place it in the refrigerator overnight, or for at least 6 hours to set. Pull the parchment paper out of the pan, and cut into squares.
  • Any uneaten squares can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
