Christmas yule log recipe

Bouche de Noel: Christmas yule Log

This recipe is a healthy, clean version of the traditional Christmas Yule Log that is served worldwide to celebrate Christmas.

Christmas is a time of celebration and bringing families together. It brings me joy to share this recipe with you just in time for you to make it today or tomorrow and enjoy on Christmas Day.

At first glance it may seem that the recipe is quite complicated and there are a lot of ingredients, but don’t be fooled. It took me less than 20 minutes to make the cake and will serve 10-15 people if not more. It is definitely worthwhile gracing your Christmas table, and the best thing of all is, that it can be frozen for later. Serve the Bushe de Noel (Christmas Yule Log) with coconut cream or ice-cream, or the remaining cashew cream frosting.

  • 2 cups of dates
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp. raw cacao
  • ¼ cup almond milk

Method


  • Put the dates, almond meal, desiccated coconut, maple syrup, coconut oil, raw cacao, and almond milk in a food processor and blend well, until all combined and smooth. Place the mixture into a bowl
  • Roughly chop the dried cranberries, pepitas, dried apricots, sultanas, Goji berries, pecan nuts, and macadamias.
  • Mix all the ingredients together, the mixture should be moist enough for you to be able to form a pudding or log shape – which ever you prefer. Place the formed cake into the fridge while you prepare the Cashew Cream Frosting. You will only need half of the frosting for the cake. The rest you can save for later to serve with the cake.
