WHO: Ali Segersten, Whole Life Nutrition and Nourishing Meals
BOOK: Healthy Holiday Grain-Free Treats and Raw Desserts
RECIPE: Grain-Free, Dairy-Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread
Yield: About 12 servings
½ cup coconut flour
½ cup arrowroot powder
1½ teaspoons baking powder
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
2 to 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 large organic eggs
⅓ cup melted coconut oil
¼ cup pure maple syrup
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup raisins
Use this bread to make French toast in the morning, or spread with organic pastured butter. Serve with warm spice tea and raw almond milk.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8.5 x 4.5 inch glass bread loaf pan with coconut oil.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In a smaller mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Pour the wet into the dry and vigorously whisk together. Fold in the raisins.
3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for about 40 minutes. Cool for about 10 minutes and then loosen the sides of the pan with a knife and turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
