Sweet Cranberry Squares

GREAT for breakfast, for a mid morning or  an afternoon healthy snack with a cuppa! (Or coffee!)  Tastes just like a moist cake but with no nasties and lots of healthy lovelies!! Quick and easy to make PLUS its virtual halo inducing!!!


Ingredients (makes 8 large squares)

1 cup of cashew nuts soaked for 1 hour or more in water

3 tbsp pomegranate paste*

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1 ripe banana

1 cup cooked quinoa

1 cup of oats

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 egg

1 tsp cinnamon powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tbsp coconut oil

Pinch of salt


* I bought my pomegranate paste from a middle eastern deli, but you can also get it on Amazon. Worth buying as there are a lot of other great recipes you can use it for – more of which will be appearing on here (it’s my new favourite ingredient!!)


1. Blend the soaked cashew nuts with a tablespoon of water to a creamy consistency. (It can still have small lumps in!)

2. Add and blend the banana in with the cashews.

3. Add all the ingredients together in a large bowl and bring together with your hands

4. Spread the mixture out onto silpat or a greased baking tray till it is about 1/4 inch thick. Mark out your cake squares.

5. Bake at 350f for 20 minutes.

Soft, tasty and healthy! Enjoy!!!

ps – try these as a sweet breakfast treat to kick off your day too!
