Healthy Christmas cake

10 December, 2018
Festively decorated Christmas cake

It's cake season 

Looking for a Christmas with more carolling and less calorie-ing?

You’ve come to the right place. Through vigorous research and extensive taste-testing (anything for our readers), we’ve discovered that there are such things as healthy Christmas cakes, and they’re delicious!

Our recipe is a dried fruit puzzle, taking the best of our favourite dried fruit flavours and garnishes to make the perfect Christmas cake.

Ingredients

650g of chopped dried fruits (we used golden raisins, cranberries and apricots)

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp ground cinnamon

3 large eggs

¼ cup steel cut oats

Juice from one orange

120g olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 150C
  • Combine chopped dried fruits, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon into a mixing bowl
  • Add to the mixing bowl and blend eggs and steel cut oats
  • Pour egg mix, orange juice and olive oil into the mixing bowl
  • Mix the ingredients in the bowl (until thoroughly combined)
  • Line a baking/cake tin, or muffin tray (whatever gets you in the Christmas spirit)
  • Place in oven for 1.5 hours, or until completely cooked through

And there you have it – a Christmas cake with all natural ingredients, no processed sugar and no flour.

Want to make it a little more fancy?

Nuts! Go nuts with your nuts - we suggest walnuts or pecans for the extra punch of powerful (and healthy) omega-3 fats.

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

What Our Members Think

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

What Our Members Think

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
