Paleo Nut, Seed, Apple and Fig Loaf

There is nothing more comforting, especially at this time of year, than a slice of bread with a thick slathering of chocolate spread. It is the ultimate comfort food. I have worked hard on this recipe over the last few months, perfecting the texture and flavour combination and trialling it out on my trusty guinea pig (hungry husband). Free from grains, gluten, dairy and refined sugar this recipe will fill your body with nourishing goodness and help satisfy any carb craving. Whether for breakfast with eggs, as a side with soup, as toast with jam or even as a tuna and lettuce sandwich, this bread is certain to go down a storm in any household, what ever the occasion!DSC_1132

  1. This looks fantastic. How would this work as mini loafs in terms of baking times? Or even muffins? Can you tell I’m excited *chuckle*?

    Great work as ever. Love your recipes

    • Hi Debbie! Thank you! So kind. Right so I would suggest 20- 25 minutes for mini loafs and muffins but keep an eye on them as they do bake quickly and you dont want the tops to burn! You can always put foil on the tops of the loaf/ muffins to prevent this! I think you will love this recipe, let me know how you get on! 🙂

      • Nom. Can’t wait! In terms of the nuts & seeds, will it mess the recipe up too much if substitutions are made? i.e. extra almonds instead of the hazelnuts and extra pumpkin seeds instead of the sunflower seeds?

  3. In the recipe, do you mean 100g of pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, and 50 grams of hazelnuts? Or 100/50 individual of each nut and seed?
