Carrot Apple Bread- Paleo Style
Carrot Apple Bread (paleo style) simple means I didn't use any grains. Almond meal as the flour, olive oil, apple sauce, pure butter, and fresh ground carrots, apples, and a few chopped up dried plums (for sweetness). Okay I did use a tiny bit of whole grain cornmeal to thickin it up a bit, but its still gluten free. The recipe and Nutrition Facts are below. Its yummy with marmite but then again you have to like marmite and be from Britain, Australia, or New Zealand, haha!
carrot/apple almond bread
3/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup organic corn meal (gluten free)
1 medium size carrot around 6-7 in. (chopped in blender or food processor)
1 medium apple (chopped in blender or food processor
5 dried plums (chopped or shredded into pieces)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 whole eggs
1/4 stick natural butter melted
2-3 tablespoons of oil (olive oil or coconut is best)
2 tsp nutmeg
*OPTIONAL- agave nectar if wanting to make sweeter (maybe 1tbsp or so)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a small bowl, microwave the butter until melted (but do not overheat). Whisk the eggs in with the butter, olive oil, applesauce, and other spices/sweeteners until well mixed. Gradually add the finely chopped (or pureed) carrots, apple, prunes, and almond flour.
Pour into a lightly greased pie plate or other casserole dish and bake for 40 minutes or so. Depending on your oven it could be 35 to 45 min.
