  • Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 180c and line a loaf tin with baking paper.

  • Step 2

    In your Ninja food processor, cream together the butter and coconut sugar by blending until well combined.

  • Step 3

    Add in the eggs and blend again.

  • Step 4

    Combine all of your dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and fold through the wet mixture. Pour this into your loaf tin and bake for 40 minutes. Then allow to cool completely.

  • Step 5

    Meanwhile, add the dates into your Ninja kitchen food processor with a splash water and blend on high until smooth. You may need to add extra liquid and scrape down the sides of the food processor to help the dates blend thoroughly.

  • Step 6

    Once you’re left with a smooth caramel, add in the cacao powder, nut butter, cinnamon and salt and blend again.

  • Step 7

    Spread the frosting over your cooled loaf cake and serve!
