1.5 cups (200g) buckwheaties or almonds

1 cup (125g) raisins

½ cup (50g) maca powder

½ cup (60g) coconut oil

½ cup (125 ml) water


2T coconut nectar or honey

2T almond butter

2T hemp oil

10 drops caramel extract (optional)

Banana Layer:

3-4 bananas

1 lemon, juiced

Cream Layer:

1 large pot Coconut Yoghurt (400g)

50g lucuma powder

1T turmeric powder


Slice the bananans, and juice the lemon. Put the bananas in a large bowl and stir the lemon juice in, so they are evenly covered. Put to one side while you make the base and the toffee.

In a high power blender or food grinder (a Nutribullet is perfect), grind up the buckwheaties and raisins to a flour. Buckwheaties are the buckwheat grain that have been soaked, sprouted and dehydrated. You can’t use raw buckwheat! If you haven’t got buckwheaties, you could use almonds instead.

Melt the coconut oil, and in a mixing bowl, stir together the buckwheaties, raisins, and maca. Pour in the coconut oil, and enough water to make a dough. Press the dough into the base of your tin or cake mold. If you have a silicon mold, you don’t need to line it, but if you’re using a normal cake tin, line it with aluminum foil first to stop it sticking.

To make the toffee, take a medium bowl, pour everything in and stir all the ingredients together by hand. You don’t need the caramel extract, but it does make it taste extra toffee-y. Spread the toffee evenly over the base.

Then arrange the bananas over the top of the toffee. If you have any leftover lemon juice, you can throw it away.

Lastly, it’s the cream layer. Take the whole pot of CoYo, and mix it in a medium sized bowl with the lucuma and turmeric, until it’s nice and thick. Spread it over the top of the cake.

If you’re feeling extra fancy, you can decorate the cake with grated raw chocolate or raw cacao powder.

Put it in the fridge to set for one hour, or the freezer for 30 mins. Any leftovers can be stored in the fridge: this cake keeps pretty well, for up to a week.
