Makes: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tbsp mixed spice
  • Zest of 1 small orange (optional)
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar (optional)
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 eggs (2 for the mixture, 1 for glazing)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate, melted

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Combine the almond meal, coconut flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, mixed spice, orange zest and coconut sugar in a medium bowl, stirring well to remove any lumps.
  2. Whisk together the coconut oil, honey, 2 eggs and vanilla in a jug. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the raisins and stir to combine.
  3. Roll 1/4 cup worth of mixture into a bun shape and add to baking tray. Repeat with rest of mixture. Whisk remaining egg and using a pastry brush, brush each bun with a little egg to glaze.
  4. Add to oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden and cooked through. Remove from oven and leave to cool for 5-10 minutes before piping a cross on each bun with the melted dark chocolate (Add the dark chocolate to a snaplock bag and then cut off a tiny corner using scissors. Then pipe the chocolate straight onto the bun.)

Enjoy with a nut butter or organic cow’s butter

Happy guilt free baking!

This has got to be one of the yummiest and easiest healthy breads I’ve ever made. It’s loaded with beneficial healthy fats, carbs and proteins. I especially love it because it contains Flaxseeds and Oats which are galactagogues and promote breast milk production. So if you’re a breast feeding mumma this one is also perfect for you!

The recipe takes about 5-10minutes to mix up and then you just need to bake. Store it in the fridge or freezer. A great breakfast, snack or side to one of my healthy soups. So no excuses to eat healthy!

Credit goes to my brother Brett for this recipe, the legend flew over from Melbourne and made me two loafs soon after Henry was born. Since then I’ve made it weekly! Who else loves healthy food gifts after the birth of a child?
