  1. 1 Preheat your oven to 180c and line a loaf tin with grease proof paper.

  2. 2 In a food processor, combine the coconut sugar, banana and coconut oil and cream these together.

  3. 3 Crack in both of the eggs and mix again.

  4. 4 Next, add in all of your dry ingredients (apart from the Jujube fruit and crisps) and blend until everything is well combined and you’re left with a reasonably smooth batter.

  5. 5 Stir through the chopped Jujube Fruits, jujube crisps (and chocolate chips if using) and pour the cake mix into the lined tin.

  6. 6 Bake this in the oven for around 35 minutes - or until a skewer comes out clean when pierced. Then transfer onto a wire rack and allow to cool.
