  • 400 g cooked sweet potato* about 3
  • 4 eggs medium
  • 140 g cashew butter
  • 60 g coconut oil melted to liquid state
  • 75 g coconut flour
  • 30 g tapioca flour
  • 75 g walnut halves
  • 30 g chia seeds
  • 25 g flaked almonds
  • 25 g pumpkin seeds
  • 20 g sunflower seeds
  • 20 g sesame seeds
  • 15 g ground flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt


  • Pre-heat oven to 180°C / 160°C  fan / gas mark 4 and line and grease a 2lb loaf tin.
  • Beat the sweet potato, eggs, cashew butter and coconut oil in a large mixing bowl or food mixer.
  • Reserve a few of the nuts and seeds for sprinkling on the top of the loaf.
  • Combine the coconut flour, tapioca flour, the rest of the nuts and seeds, turmeric, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
  • Tip the dry ingredients into the sweet potato mixture and beat until well combined.
  • Pour into the loaf tin, smooth down the top and scatter over the reserved nuts and seeds.
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes or until an inserted cocktail stick comes out clean.


You can prepare the sweet potato in the oven or the Instant Pot:
  • To cook in the oven wrap each potato in aluminium foil and bake for 1-1 ½ hours (depending on the size of the potato). Leave to cool then unwrap from the foil, peel away the skins and mash the flesh with a fork.
  • To cook in the Instant Pot, pour in 250ml of water into the Instant Pot insert. Set over a trivet and place the whole sweet potatoes in a single layer. Pressure cook for 15 minutes and then quick release after 5 minutes. Peel the sweet potatoes away from their skins and mash with a fork.
Happiness Bread is very moist and as such keeps well in the fridge for up to 5 days. (or 3 days out of the fridge)
It can be frozen for up to 2 months. It’s a good idea to freeze in slices so you can remove them from the freezer the night before you want to eat some.
