Healthy Baking: Blueberry, Coconut & Almond Loaf Recipe

Sunday Morning Blueberry, Coconut & Almond Loaf

Some mornings call for a warm, nourishing slice of a yummy loaf. And yes, there IS a way to keep it simple, real and healthy. Sophie Bradshaw of Sophie’s Blend got it right and is generously sharing her recipe here with us!

Ingredients: (makes 1 loaf)

  • 175g almonds or almond meal
  • 25g desiccated coconut
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • Cinnamon, to dust

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Pulse the almonds in a food processor until a flour forms. (If you already have almond meal, just skip this part)
  3. Transfer in to a bowl and add the coconut, baking powder and sea salt. Stir well with a wooden spoon so it’s all combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk 3 eggs for a minute before adding in the maple syrup and blueberries. Give one last stir and slowly add in to the dry mix!
  5. Give it a good stir, folding and making sure there is no dry mixture left.
  6. Transfer in to a silicone loaf shaped baking dish – don’t worry if you don’t have a silicone one, just use a regular one but remember to line and grease it!
  7. Smooth with the back of a spoon and add on some extra blueberries for decoration and sprinkle on some more coconut and cinnamon.
  8. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes and fiiiinally grab a knife….
  9. DIVE IN!
