Apple and Date Loaf
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup apple puree
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
5 medjool dates
1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarb soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Preheat the oven to 160C or 320F.
2. Combine all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine.
3. Pour into a lightly greased loaf tin and bake for 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
4. Slice into 10 slices.* Top with cashew butter or coconut butter.
*Slices can be frozen by simply putting a piece of non stick baking paper between each slice.
Note: To make apple puree simply peel and core around 4 small apples. Dice them into bite sized pieces and place then in a saucepan with water to cover. Bring to the boil then simmer for 15 minutes, until the apples are soft. Drain and blitz until smooth in the food processor. For this recipe don’t add sugar to the puree as the dates and coconut sugar when combined with the puree, sweeten the mixture gorgeously!
