Apricot Poppy Seed Bread

Ever since I’ve stopped eating grains, I have seriously missed the taste of breads… that is until now!  You’ve got to check out this website and this ladies book, it’s totally worth it;  www.elanaspantry.com

This bread recipe is roughly based on one of the recipes off her website and is delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4-1/2 cup agave (to taste)
  • 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.  In a small bowl mix coconut flour, baking soda and salt.  In another bowl beat eggs, grapeseed oil with the agave & vanilla.  Pour the dry ingredients in with the wet, then fold in the chopped apricots, poppy seeds & walnut pieces.  The batter will be a little more liquid than doughy, it will cook through just fine.  Pour into greased bread pan and bake for 30-35 minutes.  Let cool for about an hour then serve with butter or your choice of spread!

Enjoy the deliciousness 🙂

Till next time,

Baking Quiche for Dinner

Or for any other meal… but for me, tonight, it’s going to be Quiche.  Of course sans grains, sans gluten and wheat, made with good ol’ nutritional almond flour and lots of love!

Quiche crust:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1 tbsp water

Pre-heat oven to 350.  Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl.  Mix the grapeseed oil and water together then add to the dry mix.  Scoop into pie pan and press into the bottom and sides.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Quiche filling:

  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 yellow pepper (or whatever color you prefer)
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese

Saute veggies in Olive oil for about 5-6 minutes.  In another bowl beat eggs & add the ricotta cheese.  Add sautéed veggies to the egg mixture & pour into pie pan.  Cook at 350 for 30-35 minutes and let cool before serving.

Enjoy!

Till next time~
