- 2 cups ground almonds
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup unsweetened organic apple sauce
- 1/2 cup walnut oil (or use coconut oil)
- Coconut oil for greasing the loaf pan
- 1/4 cup of coconut milk
Preheat the oven to 325F. Coat a 9×5 loaf pan liberally with coconut oil.
Combine 2 cups ground almonds, 1 cup chopped walnuts, 2 tbsp ground flaxseed, 1 tbsp cinnamon, 2 tsp aluminum free baking powder and ½ tsp salt in a bowl and mix.
In another bowl, combine 2 eggs, 1 cup unsweetened organic apple sauce, 1/2 cup walnut oil (or use coconut oil) and 1/4 cup of coconut milk. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and stir. If the mixture is very stiff, add 1 to 2 tbsp more of coconut milk.
Press the dough into the pan and bake for about 45 minutes. Check the loaf by poking it with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, the Apple Walnut bread is done.
Leave to cool for 20 minutes, then turn out. Slice and serve.
