Advanced & Core Plan Options
One of the things people often miss when changing their diets are breads, muffins and other sweets. This is an awesome treat that is a great breakfast, dessert or snack. The large slices of strawberries are a burst of flavor. The recipe comes together very easily and can be sliced and frozen if desired. Make them during the holidays as gifts.
Note: Sweeteners like erythritol or date syrup should be used sparingly on a healthy diet.
- 1 pound fresh organic strawberries, sliced (about 2 ⅔ cups)
- Dash pure stevia (I use Kal brand)
- 2 cups erythritol (Advanced Plan) or 1 ¼ cup date syrup (see below) (Core Plan)
- 3 cups advanced plan flour – 2 cups almond flour, ½ cup coconut flour, ½ cup garbanzo bean flour. You can use just almond flour but doesn’t give the same consistency.
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 5 organic eggs
- 1 ¼ cup avocado oil or melted coconut oil
- 1 cup chopped nuts, optional
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two loaf pans with parchment paper.
Leave strawberries on the cutting board, sprinkle with pure stevia, and toss to coat well.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, sweetener, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Whisk eggs in another bowl then add in oil and mix well. Add the strawberries and stir. Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir well.
Pour batter into the loaf pans, dividing equally.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center. Cool in pans for about 10 minutes then carefully lift them out using the parchment paper. Use a bread knife to cut into nice clean slices.
cut about ½ pound of Medjool dates into bits and add 2 cups of water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for about 30 minutes. Let cool for another 30 minutes then puree the mixture using a high powered blender or food processor. If desired, you can strain the mixture with a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
