  • Step 1

    First make the base: Place the almonds into your Ninja Kitchen food processor and whizz up to breakdown well. Add in the syrup and coconut oil and blend again until combined.

  • Step 2

    Press into a lined 20cm loose bottom round tin (I used a silicone one) then spread the jam over the top in an even layer to cover. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    Preheat the oven to 170C. Next mix together the flour, sweetener, baking powder, egg, milk and almond extract until you have a nice batter then spoon this over the jam and spread out evenly.

  • Step 4

    Sprinkle over some frozen berries and flaked almonds and press in slightly. Bake for 30 minutes until risen and golden, then allow to cool. 

  • Step 5

    Remove from the tin, slice up and enjoy!
