Blueberry&Coconut Bread – it’s good for you!

As promised here is my recipe for scrumptious blueberry&coconut bread, you can of course put your own twist on it. I adapted it from the ‘Paleo Blueberry Bread’ recipe which can be found at thewholedaily.com.au

I love this bread for several reasons.

  1. It taste delicious, in fact too delicious, a loaf only lasts 1-2 days in our house!
  2. Packed with goodness such as magnesium, fibre (the prebiotic kind as we discussed in last weeks post), good fats and a host of other nutrients.
  3. It’s versatile. You can have it toasted for breakfast with some kefir yoghurt, you can have it as a snack on it’s own or with some butter (grass fed of course) or you could have it as a dessert with some mixed berry compote and coconut cream.
  4. You can switch it up. Sick of blueberries? use nuts, other fruit such as apricot, apple or banana!

Blueberry&Coconut Bread

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup gluten free self raising flour or buckwheat flour for paleo
  • 1/2 cup olive oil or melted butter/ghee
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/3 cup natvia, coconut sugar or other healthy sweetner (i use half and half of natvia and coconut sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp bi-carb soda (if using buckwheat flour)
  • 1/2 tsp apple-cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup coconut chips

Method

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees.
  • Whisk the olive oil, eggs and apple cider vinegar in medium sized bowl.
  • Sift the flours, sweetners(sugars) and bicarb soda straight into the bowl, then mix until combined.
  • Slowly fold the blueberries and coconut chips into the mixture until somewhat evenly distributed. The mixture will be towards dough-like rather than being runny.
  • Grease and line a rectangular bread tin and place the mixture in, flattening out the top with the back of a spoon until the mixture is in all the corners and evenly spread.
  • Bake for 20-25 until brown on top. You may need to rotate it once, it browns quickly.
  • Let it cool for approximately 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
  • Cut, serve and enjoy!
