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,

Erin

It is different, & it is tricky, but it is also possible and I've found some tricks to satisfy even the most carb loving baker without the extra sugar and gluten that some of us just can't eat; and I'm looking forward to sharing more recipes with you as I experiment along.

    Hey Erin! I made this bread today but used honey instead of agave and put currants and pumpkin seeds in instead of apricots and walnuts. Added a little cinnamon and voilà! Variations on a theme:) It turned out great and the kids might not leave any for me! They haven idea it is grainless… Thanks!
